The name of the UDT for which the most recent SQL create text, including that for its CREATE ORDERING and CREATE TRANSFORM statements, are to be reported. This specification applies to both the SHOW CAST and the SHOW TYPE statements.

Similarly, if the only cast or ordering or transform functionality for a UDT is system-generated, the system does not report that DDL because it was not created by SQL CREATE requests, so there is no create text to return.
