Record Looks "issue"

The action:
HC.RecordLook('look_page',look_number[,'merge'|'replace'][,'IPCGLSTE'][,'label'])
...seems to "Record Deltas" regardless of the settings in SHOW OPTIONS.

Not complaining - that result is what I actually want. It just seems incongruous that the "Default Record Look" behaviour is ignored.

If that aspect was changed to deal with more complex remote operation, then the Lua script would need to be altered so that you could:
- explicitly specify the record action type,
- leave blank to get the current result (allowing legacy users of the script to continue use)
... and while you are at it, allow for plus/minus subs. So maybe the command should look something like this

HC.RecordLook('look_page',look_number[,'merge'|'replace'][,'IPCGLSTE'][,'label'][,'default_type'|'live'|'delta'][,'minus_subs'|'plus_subs'|'default_subs'])

Likewise this:
HC.RecordCue('cue_list',cue_number[,'merge'|'replace'][,'IPCGLSTE'][,cue_time][,'label'])

maybe should look like this:
HC.RecordCue('cue_list',cue_number[,'merge'|'replace'][,'IPCGLSTE'][,cue_time][,'label'][,'default_type'|'live'|'delta'|'blocklist'|'blockall'][,'minus_subs'|'plus_subs']|'default_subs'])

Just a thought.

You are correct on all accounts.
