Yes, there is currently no way to do CRUD with CCK stuff. And it hurts
install profiles. So, making the CRUD bits with CCK happen will enable
this for modules AND let you also create on-the-fly node stuff in
install profiles.

I have a snippett of code somewhere that duplicates stuff from CCK to
allow CRUD to happen, but it's a hack.....
