Nobody's right if everybody's wrong...

But I didn't come here to talk order, law and or otherwise.  I came here to talk about CL, types/sorts, and syntax.  All of the concrete syntactic sugar to allow variables to be constrained to satisfy some one-place predicate. However, the semantics are explicitly and deliberately designed so that type errors lead to sentences which are always  false, rather than being syntax errors.  

Was a sorted dialect of CL ever proposed?
