Question about improvement on reified generics

Hello Valhalla-Dev,

I have a question to the the improvement of reified generics in java. I 
read about it by [1]
If I understand it correctly, class<value type> will be reified, but not 
class<reference type>, right? But then, on page 31 of [1] something like 
a reified String is captured and String is a reference type? After all, 
will class<reference type> become a reified type?

Best regards,
