Ah, let me add one point: PEP563  (-> `from __future__ import annotations`) is also not helping. 

Even with PEP563 enabled, the JSON example  

   Json = Union[ List['Json'], Dict[str, 'Json'], int, float, bool, None ]

needs to be written in exact the same way as without PEP563. In other words there are cases where `ForwardRef` cannot be avoided. And unforntunately these are the cases where we have the ForwardRef missing context issue.
