That's not the point. The question is, say, you want (some of) the
default types *only* be addable to your custom type, so you want to
replicate what you do in ZMI by ticking one check box: the 'implicitly
addable' flag on a default type.

In the old days this would have been something like this (pseudo code):


in the custom product's install.

The question is: how would you do that from an extension profile
without replicating the entire 'File' fti for just this little change?
