I've wanted to avoid doing this if at all possible; it makes the UI more 
confusing and means that we can't rely on the inherent JSON types any 
more; other API users would have to annotate too.

The way we handle this in Rabbit proper is to allow any number type for 
a number, any string type for a string. This also reduces hassle for 
people declaring things over AMQP. Tony - is there a reason not to do this?

Cheers, Simon
