On a more abstract level this is indeed a nice view. In case of 
iota though, I'm lost a little bit with this, especially the 
version with "if (isFloatingPoint!(CommonType!(B, E, S)))". 
Depending on B, E and S this might have a calculatable length or 
not. Should we omit length here altogether? If not, how to cope 
with the cases, where we cannot calculate it?
