These data types weren't created because of any ad hoc "exploration"
of best practice. They all have different performance & memory
characteristics. What type you use for a particular problem is
directly related to the requirements. How do you plan on having a
unified data model that provides optimal performance / memory usage
for every problem space?

Something more concrete than "evolving the language" wankery - like
actual, non-trivial examples - would really help with your argument.
