I completely disagree :)
1. The user has his own problems, and it's using a programming
language to solve them. And the more significantly complex his problem
is, the less time and energy he will have for other people's problems.
2. The type is "number". Number should behave the same, always. The
fact subtype is a "sub"  means that no info should leak from there to
the type, or they would be actually two distinct types.
