> Currently, the application specifies the types of the input keys and values and the RecordReader
checks them for consistency. It would make more sense to have the RecordReader define the
types of keys that it will produce. Therefore, I propose that we add two new methods to RecordReader:
> WritableComparable createKey();
> Writable createValue();
> Note that I propose adding them to the RecordReader rather than the InputFormat, so that
they can specific to a particular input split.
