Note the serialization library contains code which handles essentially same
problem domain. Its under extended_type_info. It even has
its own documentation. However some of the functionality
is mixed into the serialization library.

It has the following features:

no common base class required for objects created by factory
registration by GUID
usage of rtti optional
object don't have to be default constructible
class definitons can be DLLs, - static templates
refer to DLLS as necessary only if the derived class GUID
is explicitly referred to.
