These APIs are typically used from code, not BXML - I just don't think that casting is a big
deal in general. Sometimes it is necessary, especially when APIs are designed to be generic
(like this one). But, like I said, it is easy enough to add a type parameter to the method
to avoid the need to cast.

anyway we can alway cast to any type with double cast! 

Blech! That's even worse.  :-)
