This has been more-or-less a peeve of mine between C++ and C#, but when it comes to casting, or for that matter, having to use (and know the difference between!) '->' '::' and '.', if find the effective dumbing down of C# unfortunate. So - if forced to cast, perhaps it's a way to keep all the ducks in order and also letting you know there are ducks.

Behind the scenes "promotions" make life easier (and in certain SQL I depend upon them) but understanding being built into the code is (in my opinion) a plus.
