if dynamic arrays are actually pointers, why the record should not be
completely defined?
Isn't using dynamic array would be something similar to this:

PMyRecord =^TMyRecord;
TMyRecord = record
 Id: Integer;
 Name: String;
 ChildRecords: PMyRecord;
 ChildCount: Integer; // implicit dynamic array field.
