On reflection, I agree with comment #16. While the lack of substitutability in
the dynamic semantics is something that people need to watch out for, it's
probably liveable with. On the static side, I have a feeling that one thing
that we could really do with is an "all data is untyped" switch (in the static
context) so that users working in a non-schema-aware world don't suffer all
these usability problems. Perversely, if you know that all data is untyped then
you can often do much better type inference than when you don't.
