UNSET! is the value that words "with no value" have. It is also
the value returned by expression that "don't return anything".

SYMBOL! is an internal type.

They are internal types too. CONTEXT! is the internal value that
is used to represent contexts; you can think of it as being very
similar to a OBJECT! (or, to be more precise, you can think of
OBJECT! as being a CONTEXT! exposed to user space :).
