This has less to do with dynamic typing than memory management... in C++ you can dynamic_cast any object. MetaObject and meta_cast are partly ways to add more structure to dynamic_cast and C++ polymorphism. The only thing is, you have to actually cast *to* something, it's not like some languages where you can just call a method and the object either responds or fails to (silently or not).
