the requirement that a restricted type must be an inline type is too strong,
the restricted type should be able to be at least the same as the field descriptor too otherwise you can not using it in a template class if the argument type is not an inline class.
And for other languages than Java that may want to support full reification, it's better to support any subtypes.
