Well … I don’t say it is impossible. I say it is complicated and it is
 a must (one way or the other).
So … I think these are legitimate questions:

1.      Why should the client application (or serializer) drop the 
type information when it has it and the server (parser) try to guess 
it, when it can simply read it?

2.      What are the arguments against making the type mandatory (when
 for any mapping tool this is mandatory information)? Are these 
arguments stronger than the simplicity of serialize/parse

well ... should every parser and serializer implement some complicated
 rules in order to extract type which is already explicit in the 
client applications that create the annotation?
