 Of course there are situations when we can't call CreateType before
 instanciating generic type (like in my example in this bug). 
 This way I guess gmcs won't work on MS.NET if it's using pattern above.

+Calling GetGenericTypeDefinition() on a TypeBuilder does not create a
+new type or return anything different than the current one.
+It has, however, an important side-effect: it works similar to
+CreateType(); the first time it's called, it creates some internal
+data structures in the runtime to actually "create" the type.
