"rails generate model" Attribute Type Enforcement

I noticed today, when I mistyped the keyword “references” as “reference” that rails g model doesn’t enforce the types of attributes added to a model, so when the migration is run, an error occurs. Is there a reason this isn’t enforced? Since generate model creates a migration by default, it would make sense for the rails command to catch errors like this before generating a bunch of files. Are there ever use cases where the you would want to pass an attribute type that wouldn’t work in a migration, or is this a reasonable feature?
