The present paper discusses some issues in program synthesis by relating the idea of systematic program derivation with the concepts of data type and correctness of data representation. The notion of an incomplete definition of a data type at a high level of abstraction is introduced. The ideas are illustrated through an example previously discussed in the literature by D. Gries.
