Strong-typing is a much better way to state intent then relying on the descriptiveness of a property name. Granted, it is possible that this truth is false, but 99% of the time it won't be false, and even then, proper use of unit testing can get us to 100%.
It is possible that a property name can be truly descriptive (and in maintainable code 99% of the time it won't be), and proper use of unit testing can get us to 100%.
Faint praise for busywork (and come on, anyone who uses the phrase "strong typing" in all seriousness as if it actually meant something other than "You're going to wear out your keyboard and wrists soon!" inspires little confidence) doesn't impress me much. Type erasure less so.
