Portal Types are a very basic concept in CMF. The question is: Do you 
want to allow Plone users to define different Portal Types for one 
content class?

If no:
It doesn't matter if you define the permissions in the class or in the 
Types Tool. In fact it would be easier to do it in Archetypes.

If yes:
The Types Tool is the natural place for defining the permissions because 
Portal Types are defined in the Types Tool.

I can't see CMF is moving away from Portal Types.
