The Formatter is responsible for setting the Type of the SerializationInfo instance before passing it to GetObjectData. However, users who want to send proxies for their objects will need to change the type represented by this SerializationInfo instance. Using the SetType method is equivalent to setting both the FullTypeName and the AssemblyName.
