I have no objections, with the slight caveat that Im not sure we might not want to make some changes to the notion of 'datatype map', which was invented purely as a last-minute fix to make the semantics make sense, and might need a more careful examination, and the semantics might be relevant when we do.

Sorry about delay in replying, have been off-internet for a while.
