That was the part I was failing to understand, thanks for the explanation.

I don't find anything to say to your proposal. I understand the
differences with what I proposed, but can't find argument to choose one
or the other.
I think the part I was finding the most annoying in the current proposal
was the forced conversion in the trap (and being forced to convert back
while in the handler) and you proposal gets rid of it too.
