Are you going to add accountNumber's together? Are you going to divide on accountNumber by another one? An ex-coworker of mine use to make anything called a number (SSN, phone, account) a numeric type and it would drive me crazy.


Are you going to concatenate, substring, replace, index any accountNumber?? For that matter, are you going to apply any methods of any type??

That make for a bad argument for why not to use a type. Anything called a Number being expressed as a numeric type would allow for the best space efficiency. Number quantities expressed as strings would result in faster display routines--still slower transfer between function calls or network protocols.

Simple answer: Use the type that allows for readability.
