> that makes IDEs simpler and more accurate in code navigation and refactoring

IMHO, that's one the OP's main arguments, that for example there is a whole class of (liberal?!) people to which IDEs don't matter at all, so that someone (a conservative?!) arguing "hey, this static typing thingie makes IDEs more easy to use" doesn't matter. So it makes sense to at least know on which side of the fence each of us sits, so that we won't argue as much :)

(just to be clear, I'm trying to use the concepts "liberal" and "conservative" as they're defined in the article)
