Why do you think this is valid?

You're saying it should allow a set of objects containing a superclass
EventRequest to be used as a set of objects of a subclass.  The compiler is
rightly stopping this because you could then retrieve an object from the new
collection thinking it's a StepRequest when it's only an EventRequest.
