On a fresh new read of spec and proposed changes, I think you are right. My
issue was with "the static type of X" which is not "a type" but defined as a
union of types.

The ambiguity was in my head, not in the (literal) reading of the spec.

Yes, I think this makes sense. It would make for a clearer read of U-type
related parts of the spec. Or perhaps instead of calling it a static type, we
should just always call it the U-type, as the words "static type" can easily be
confused with the declared type of a declaration or expression.
