Actually, it sounds to me like we need user extensibility to
bring chaos to this order ;-)
 
Obviously, applications are free to construct whatever RealTypes
they need.  There will be some variables where users will want
the system to standardize (e.g., time, at least in most cases)
and some that are really peculiar to the application or even the
session.
