That is my understanding, given the way you are using the terms
and "value". It could also be said that series values
are mutable, while other values are immutable.

I haven't had time to do all the "REBOL particle physics" myself,
and don't know whether anyone else has tried all the possibilities

To the contrary! You SHOULD "snoop around" and confirm for yourself
that you understand how things are behaving in REBOL! That's likely
the best way to learn, and to confirm that what you think you've
learned is true.
