[cairo] How should bindings deal with surfaces of unknown type?

when you cairo_surface_create_similar on, say, a PDF surface, you get a
surface of type CAIRO_INTERNAL_SURFACE_TYPE_META. But since that's
internal, all you see is a surface of type 4096. When language bindings
encounter such a surface, they have little choice but to represent it as
a generic surface. Thus, you can't call PDF specific surface methods on
the result of calling create_similar on a PDF surface.
Is there a way to solve this problem?
