Do we require that all entities inside the constructor have the same dynamic 
type? If we do, then I buy the above statement. If it isn't, then obviously 
it won't work.

My impression was that no one ever thought about polymorphic entities 
appearing in a constructor and the easiest (not the same as best) choice was 
to use the declared type and not worry about matching of dynamic types?
