If the processor has sufficient information available (e.g. it knows that the
item matches type map(K, V), it can avoid coercion.  Otherwise (it only knows
that the item is map(*), it has to be pessimitic and introduce coercion. 
However, from the point of view of the user, there is no observable difference.
