Objet : [seqfan]  Look and Say novelty?

Hello SeqFans,

I like this finite one -- which kind of self-constructs nicely:

S = 1, 213223, 31424344, 

... a(n) says: "Look, we have so far in the sequence (including my
digits), this quantity of digits 'a', that quantity of digits 'b',

Example: a(2) says "there are two 1's so far (including my digits)"
                       -> yes, the '1' of a(1) and the '1' of a(2); 
                   "there are three 2's so far"
                       -> yes, my three 2's;
                   "there are two 3's so far"
                       -> yes, my two 3's.

         a(3) says "there are three 1's, four 2's, four 3's, four 4's
                    so far (including my digits)"
                       -> yes, ...

Are there other such sequences, with different start for instance?

And if this sequence is submitted, does a(2) have to be written 212332?
