ISTM the doc sets "cons traps" for new users. e.g., 

6.2.1 Using the Configuration System 
       (file-systems (cons (file-system
                             (device "my-root")
       (users (cons (user-account
                     (name "alice")

I call these "cons traps" because the first thing our new user may do is
add a file system or user and be greeted by a scheme error ...

Wrong number of arguments to #<procedure cons (_ _)>

WDYT of replacing all these uses of cons with cons*? - George
