I see 4 options:

1. integration of FastRTTI
2. limited integration, only part of "FastRTTI"  branch (only table with
initialization operators and related compiler and RTL part)
3. moving "Flags: TRecordInfoInitFlags;" into private section of record in
TypInfo module, it can be removed in the future (if needed) without
breaking backward compatibility for users code
4. all will stay as-is (the worst scenario)

The option 2 seems optimal (no redundant/useless actions/calls in

Best regards,
