I assume these are two independent suggestions.

I've done the first.

I don't have a problem with the examples being informal, and I don't think 
it's redundant with the "for example" -- without it, it's not clear if 
fooTypeTime could return anything else if it was invented, or if it would 
only be allowed to return whatever it is the example says it can return. 
So I haven't done the second.
