Vern might know whether there's anything that would severely break but
my guess is that in principle we could do that. However, I like the
port type, it provides additional context for type checking and
understanding a script. Also, changing that would be quite a large
internal change: the type is used at many places and at some, we'd be
now be left without port information where we need it.
