Being able to throw away the static type information is a good thing. (Also Haskell throws away less than, say, Ocaml.)

The static types in Haskell are a way to mechanically prove certain propositions about the program. You do not need to conserve the proof during runtime---because your very aim was to statically ensure runtime properties.
