 Replying to [comment:8 tyxla]:
 > @valendesigns these are disallowed by design, as they are used
 internally by WordPress. You can read more about these three here:
 register_post_type#Reserved_Post_Types] - quoting:

 Thank you for the response. And yes, I understand the potential conflicts
 and have read that article before. However, it says "should not be used",
 it does not say they are disallowed. This patch is making the decision for
 you even though the documentation says something different. Are they 100%
 NOT allowed to be register or are they edge cases that could present a
 conflict but only under a certain situation and as a developer if I know
 the pitfalls shouldn't I be able to make that decision. If they are not
 allowed then the documentation needs to be updated, as well.
