Good point, Oriol.

We could follow the paragraph your quoted (on ambiguous types) with a note:  “This means that, inside a mathematical function, a 0 is always parsed as a number and not as a length. See [Type Checking].”  That should handle the clarification for authors.

My point about the `<zero>` definition still stands, though: either use it or lose it!
