Ok,the default type idea would be good, but not complete, what I'd
really like is to:
- attach a default type if not specified
- have a switch so that attribute types are not shown, but only theirs
  names (would be good for domain models that you want to show to a
  stakeholder that it's not a software develeper... ever being asked
  something like "what's that 'float' thing?'... consider a stakeholder
  that does not understand english and the comedy is complete)
Ah, of course the idea of keeping the basic models in a separate package
is a good one (I like it :-)
