I think I found a workaround. There seems to be no requirement that the term that's printed is type-correct. Hence, you could type all numerals with the type "nat" or "real" or probably even "unit" to avoid the spurious type annotations. For example:

    ML {*
    @{term "0::nat"}
    |> Type.constraint @{typ "'b"}
    |> Syntax.string_of_term @{context}
