Comment (by danieliser):

 This may not be the best place but what we really need isn't CPT in a CT,
 but rather an API to easily generate the post type editor page with custom
 data feeds.

 The CPT UI, Permalinks, Taxonomy Integration etc are the factors we are
 struggling to keep, but the data constraints make things like e-commerce
 or any other data that requires reporting very difficult without Custom

 I am considering the implications at this point of a Hybrid option. Use
 CPT to store the primary info & ID, then modify the query to JOIN the CT
 data. It's definately not the way I would prefer to do it but even with
 the extended query it should be fast, and easily searchable using a JOIN
 in the other direction.
