It is intended to cover all interoperable types. In particular, this works:

subroutine sub(x) bind(c)
   type(interoperable_t), dimension(:) :: x
end subroutine

and it passes a descriptor where the elem_size field is set to the sizeof the 
corresponding interoperable C struct.

Perhaps you can explain why N1761 does not cover this case---again, I cannot 
read your mind here.
