You are correct. The declared type must be loadable. I was thinking  
of an SSNImpl type which need not be. However, that's not really  
relevant to the problem at hand...

I'm afraid that I may have improperly narrowed your objectives by  
singling out fieldTypes. PCRegistry$Meta.pc and pcSuper could also  
keep Classes/ClassLoaders alive...
