However, "type-assignment" is a quite similar task with validation. In
fact, validator can easily report the type information if it wants to do
Or, in other words, if one wants to implement a "type-reporter", he/she
is essentially implementing a validator.

"Validation without type-assignment" is possible, but "type-assignment
without validation" is not possible.
Therefore, in implementation level, validator can (and I think it 'should') incorporate
I asked this question because your implementation doesn't incorporate
