Right. (My contracts+X comment was a "view from underneath" comment. I
was thinking that the documentation system, for example, might have to
change to extract the contract part of these new things and show that
to the user since I expect the coercion part to be something that is
an internal implementation aspect (but still waiting for some help
from Jay on that point).)

It isn't so much contracts+X that we're looking at to implement interoperability, but contracts = interop-stuff + blame-mechnism + possibly-more. Jay is trying to reuse the first part of this sum -- for purposes that Jacob's thesis seems to imply: contract-like stuff is good to establish interop invariants.
