Yes, they do, and it's needed. That's exactly what fixes the
problems with $<type> -- the type must be stored somewhere.

Not storing the type seems a nifty idea with Bison which knows about
the type most of the time, but it breaks down just there.

Yes, and I've also tested it with gcc-6 with mpark's variant.
