So? export the default_values of the form array structure to the  
$module_content_fields($type) function.
I bet fquery could really useful for this.

And instead of doing that code in the install profile, by hand, you  
just enable the module. Which has it's own
.install which just recurs through the exported data in the  
$module_content_fields($type) hook, for each
$type that the module defines.

Ideally we'd need to hook into the forms for the validation and  
especially the code that creates the tables any way.
