While I think type *is* orthogonal (as is validation), sooner or 
later, *something* has to interpret the data and the overloaded 
methods... thereby introducing the notion of "type"...

FWIW. I think WRDL might be damaging to your cause because it makes 
things look too much like web services. You might be better off 
defining a mechanism for composition thereby allowing abstraction.
