Murrine Configurator is solving this problem.
95% of users use Configurator to Configure their themes, so there's no
problem related, and probably it will be a problem makin the opposite.
I think that with strings people may write mistakes in typing and
integers prevents this.
Another thing is that with "integer" i can make >= == <= comparations
in the engine so i can enable/disable features in a simple way.

When there will be a GUI (i.e. gnome 2.18 will probably features this)
then I will certanly manage that improvement, even with you if you know
how to manage it in the right way! :)
