Let me put it this way:
   why do YOU care whether all the elements of the tuple have
   the same type?

Since the client's calls to your code might not be type checked,
you cannot rely on type checking to guarantee whatever property
it is you need, so you are going to need a run-time check anyway,
aren't you?
