But with recent changes to the data type hierarchy this fake no arg approach fails and the test code in TestBinaryMaskOverlay began failing. I have commented out this test for now as we are not sure how we want to handle serialization going forward. We should figure out how we will support serialization of overlays and restore the commented out test,
