  > Even `C-u' (`universal-argument') is not a prefix argument. It is a command 
that begins reading a prefix argument and that, possibly together with other 
commands (such as `digit-argument') provides that prefix argument to a followup 

We think of C-u as beginning a prefix argument, without exception.
Sometimes the prefix argument consists of C-u and nothing but C-u.

However, I agree it is clearest NOT to think of C-x RET c
as a prefix argument.  The prefix argument is a specific kind of value
and that is not how C-x RET c works.
