We adapt the aliasing constraints approach for designing a flexible typing of evolving

objects. Types are singleton types (addresses of objects, as a matter of fact) whose relevance

is mainly due to the sort of safety property they guarantee. In particular we provide a type

system for an imperative object based calculus with delegation and which supports method

and delegate overriding, addition, and removing.
