Hi Nitin,
I've implemented this type hinting technique in my employer's Scheme
editor and using it we found it wasn't really necessary to persist the
hints because one can apply them very quickly. Persisting them across
edits will be interesting though. In my previous implementation the
AST was reconciled incrementally so the hints could be stored on AST
nodes. Implementing incremental AST reconciliation is tricky so in
JSDT I'll store them differently.
