Unknown: You're right about that bit. There may not me any well defined frequency as whatever it is goes to infinity.

But either way, looks like the options are "structure/rules" or "random"

Besides, even the "random walk" thing... that'd still just be a type of random, not directly applied to, say, the sequence of bits but to a certain property of the sequence of bits.

J.:

That would then just fall under the category of, well, random. At least in my view. That is, those sequences of "rules" are where the randomness is instead.
