There's no infrastructure for doing this, but it should be possible. However, I don't think you'd want to instantiate with ints… rather, you'd want to instantiate with some dummy type that doesn't imply any specific behavior.
However, it depends on your goals. It might just be easier to inspect the contents of the primary template directly, since there's a full AST there anyway.
