Sorry that it took me so long, but I wanted to reread your proposed 
FastRTTI changes before deciding and I only found the time this evening.

I'm currently indeed leaning towards option 2.
If you want to prepare this you can of course do it in a way that allows 
to easily add in your other FastRTTI changes at a later date (though 
those are still a bit up for debate (lessthe principal idea, more the 
concrete implementation)).
