One thing I'm not clear on is, what value is there in knowing that, say, 32 
is a float, if you don't know that that particular float represents, for 
example, the length of a box?  Surely it's not sufficicient to just know the 
type of something.  You also have to know what to do with it for it to be 
useful.  And if you know what to do with it, you implicitly know its type so 
it doesn't need to be explicitly stated.

What am I missing?
