I think the following should be documented instead: CType (and it's C<type> 
friends for built-in types, a complete list would be useful) is usually 
implemented as calls to VB runtime rather than using IL code so it should be 
avoided when that specific behavior is not required. DirectCast is the 
eqivalent of C# casting.

Because this is something that C# programers may be unaware of.
