-Now I know that the differences are minor and that they could be properly implemented ​at the system classes. Therefore, I aligned some system classes with the PDF classes by declaring the system classes as PDF type and removing the PDF class: Null and Boolean. Next to go is Number; later maybe String and Date and...+Now I know that the differences are minor and that they could be properly implemented ​in the system classes.
