That would give away the option of typesafe vector math, which I consider more valuable than the increased performance:
I don't want to write things like "Vector3D" and "Vector4D" to wrap a static array just to ensure that it has the right size, and I don't want to have runtime-checks which would decrease the performance-benefit.
