Frankly, I hate the opaque thing too and it is going to change. 
In my mind, it *must* be introspectable to be useful (without 
that, it also fails test #8 btw).

The sample implementation in the DIP its all these points, but 
the spec text doesn't. We had a hard time figuring out how to 
word it in spec-ese  and kinda gave up, but it is obvious that 
giving up on that was a major mistake that we're going to go back 
and correct after this feedback round.
