  Well in fact, many people would say that surely a concept such as
  'height' is NOT the same when talking about different sorts of things.
  For example:
  (height (make-instance 'elm-tree))              ;in FEET
  (height (font-ref *default-hardcopy-font* #\a)) ;in INCHES
  (height (make-instance 'window))                ;in PIXELS

Looks more like an issue of units than an issue of datatype to me.
