I think this is just intended as a quirk for some weird targets that 
have a legal vector type, but the scalar type itself is not legal, so it 
requires an implicit extension when extracting it. I don't think it's 
intended as something you can arbitrarily do for any vector type, and I 
wouldn't recommend trying to use it if you don't have to. This probably 
requires custom selector code
