An "allow_module" allows import of the module and all its content.

It does not in general allow to use the objects inside the module.
For example, to use class instances for classes defined in the module,
the class must provide its own security declarations which control
in what way the instances can be used.

In your case, the module contains special types.
You need an "allow_type" for each of these types to be able to
use them.
