comment how should I design Objects around this business requirement?
I agree with that article (I had actually read the very same Scott Meyer's article against instanceOf()). For the very same reason, I am trying to come up with a better design to the problem I asked in my question.

comment how should I design Objects around this business requirement?

@Marvin Thanks for the link. I'm (re-)reading it :) I knew these things are not trivial, yet I could not keep my curiosity in check!
