We present an alternative framework for the description of random tiling ensembles. Including the conventional description, it is also applicable to tiling ensembles without a height representation. We discuss a quasicrystallographic example in order to demonstrate the consistency of the two description schemes. Following our approach, we prove a generalization of the first random tiling hypothesis. We present an exactly solvable crystallographic random tiling violating the analogue of the second random tiling hypothesis.
