Ah, but that's not what I said :-)

I said "why do we need a seperate notation"?

I can do loose coupling despite using the same word 'integer' to represent 
the same concept in various places, although sometimes it's capitalised to 
Integer or INTEGER or abbreviated to int. And the notion of a C struct / 
Pascal record / Perl hash-with-agreed-keys / PHP array-with-agreed-keys / 
Java class-with-public-fields-and-no-parent are all fairly interchangeable in 
many contexts, too...
