      Description

      The spec for Open MBeans currently says of the ArrayType constructor:
      @throws OpenDataException if elementType is an instanceof ArrayType.

      That is, you cannot write:
      ArrayType at = new ArrayType(1, SimpleType.STRING);
      ArrayType at2 = new ArrayType(1, at);
      to get an ArrayType that represents a two-dimensional array of Strings.

      This restriction is pointless and makes code unnecessarily hard to write. For example, the MXBean infrastructure needs to code special cases because of this.
