      Description

      Many converter classes derived from AbstractConverter ignore the target type in their implementation of converterToType(). They just perform a conversion to their default type.

      Depending on the way converters are registered, this may not be a major problem, but it is inconsistent. In theory it can lead to unexpected data and ClassCastExceptions after a successful conversion.
