FWIW, I think this is an exceptionally bad idea.
I'd much prefer to see CMF grow a way to use Z3 content types without 
having to drag them down into the mire that is portal_types and the 
actions system :-S

Maybe some kind of parallel thing where the UI-level stuff amalgamates 
both the CMF and Z3 ways of doing things (portal_types/content types and 
actions/menus) with the aim being eventually to drop the old CMF stuff?
