of CCK allow adding of custom fields to /any/ node type, regardless if
it's just a wrapper around custom fields. There is no technical
limitations for module developers to continue right on making their own
custom node types as they have in the past. Instead, we have to convince
them with design possibilities or "it's better this way", such as the
merging of OG + CCK + Case Tracker in http://drupal.org/node/105808.
