Sorry. To answer your question, it wasn't a particular type I had in mind, it was more trying to ask the question of how well the infrastructure deals with new types. In the bad old days introducing a new type was deemed risky because a lot of middleware, such as caches and firewalls had type-specific code. I was wanting to test the claim that most modern middleware is type-oblivious and "just works" with new types. So ideally, it would be a type that doesn't exist or one that has just recently been published. Mark.
