YMMV but I tend to say that those aren't the usual types of a business application where I come from.

Answering questions like "how many" (integer), "what" (text) and "when" (date) is far more common than "give me that binary blob" at least in the domain where I work. Never had the necessity for an interval type; usually had a start and end value where the "interval" was derived from those values.
