Hmm, interesting that exists a real problem with typeclass derivation, which can relate to JSON-convert lib: it does not work with complex hierarchies (see https://github.com/lampepfl/dotty-feature-requests/issues/161 ), which makes the potential library usage quite limited in practice. (Hope, this will be better in 3.1)
