> The actual behavior of UDTs, now under construction, does not conform to the spec. The
spec says that you can't CAST to or from UDTs. This is probably too harsh. We should allow
the following CAST
>   cast ( null as udtType )
> I also think that we should allow at least the implicit casting of subtypes to supertypes
since Java gives us the ability to discover the type graph. See Knut's comment on DERBY-651
