I'd put all the navigation targets as additional attributes of the Type
itself. Which either requires extending a bit the ActionsTool, or simply
use not-visible pseudo-actions  la
  id: edit_target
  action: mytype_edit
and some logic to automatically go to indirect through edit_target,
for instance
  <form action="portal_form/action_target?target=edit">
or even
  <form tal:attributes="action here/portal_form/action_target/edit">
or something...
