    "orderable": false,
    "draft": false,
    "content": {
        "AWSTemplateFormatVersion" : "2010-09-09",
        "Description" : "AWS TEST Sample Template Rails_Single_Instance.",
        "Parameters" : {
            "KeyName": {
                "Description" : "Name of an existing EC2 KeyPair to enable SSH access to the instances",
                "Type": "AWS::EC2::KeyPair::KeyName",
                "ConstraintDescription" : "must be the name of an existing EC2 KeyPair."

    Gracefully fail on resource create
    When creating a new object, validate the type if the type is specified to ensure it is a descendant of the specified resource class, similarly to what is done for other collections such as authentications.
