Changing variable type in Orchestration Designer

In general the BizTalk 2009 Visual Studio integration is very good, however it doesn't seem very receptive to change. An annoyance I found recently in the Orchestration Designer occurred when I tried to change the type of an existing orchestration variable. This caused the project to no longer compile. The solution was to delete the variable and recreate it. This only took a few seconds but should not be necessary.
