The "impossible" category is for when such objects can never be passed
to `type-of`, typically because they are not available to Elisp.

But there's no harm/risk to "allow" a particular kind of object even if
it's actually impossible for it to be passed to type-of.

Accordingly, I just installed the patch below into emacs-26.
