Hmmm, I am afraid this might not be possible... Once your DerivedT is
present anywhere in the template tree, the typeof mechanism needs to know
about it in order to be able to encode/decode it. This applies to any type
or template. The library-defined types/templates can (and should) be
registered by the library, but once a user defines a new type, it has to be
registered too, by the user.
