I think this is a bug. Even if getTypes() returns AbstractClass only, 
you should still be able to call all the methods of AbstractClass 
(including those that come from Interface) and therefore, the proxy 
class generator should be generating these.

I filed https://issues.jboss.org/browse/WELD-2010 for Weld.
