  Would not that restrict the usability of such a type?  I expect
users to write functions wrapping the binary functions, adding
features to them, proxying the params and/or the return values,
etc.  If their type is not representable by a user function (nor
for the type of a variable), I think that would be a huge
restriction in usability.
