Class types are equivalent of module types for classes.  They are not
types, though class type declaration defines a type with the same
name.  All your examples (coercion, #-expression) are about types, not
classes nor class types.

So, classes make a new category of "things" in ocaml.  Honestly, I
don't like this "ontological bloat".  I'm still wondering whether
objects, classes and class types can be subsumed to values, types or
even modules.
