To some degree, this type of argument is now irrelevant. Newest versions 
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.

Yep, bingo. I've recreated the concept of project
milestones in Case Tracker using case + cck + event.
