    A basic technique is to use newtype declarations to declare separate 
    types for separate intents.
         append (AnnotatedString x) (AnnotatedString y)
           = AnnotatedString (x ++ y)
  2. or download this
       If x and y have the same safety level,
       then (x ++ y) has again that same safety level.
  3. or download this
       type family Join a b
       type instance Join Safe Safe = Safe
       type instance Join Safe Unsafe = Unsafe
       type instance Join Unsafe Safe = Unsafe
       type instance Join Unsafe Unsafe = Unsafe

         :: AnnotatedString a
         -> AnnotatedString b
         -> AnnotatedString (Join a b)

       (x ++ y) is at least as safe as the least safe of x and y.
