    The type service provides extension points for pluggable document types.

    Document types here can be seen as entities defining the behavior of a
    document within the ECM: they hold information about the way they will be
    managed and rendered.

      A document type has the following properties:

      - id: its string identifier

      - remove: if true, remove this ecm document type. Can be used, for
      instance, if there is a document type contributed by nuxeo-dm that you
      don't want in your application. (Be careful to add a dependency to the
      contribution that creates this document type.)

      - icon: icon path used to represent the document type.

      - icon-expanded: icon used for instance in tree view

      - bigIcon: icon path aimed at rich application

      - bigIcon-expanded: same as icon-expanded for rich application

      - category: Category of the document type.

      - description: Description of the document type.

      - label: string title.

      - subtypes: list of the allowed sub document types for a given container.
      This can be used to filter some document types creation and copy to
      specific kinds of container documents.

      - deniedSubtypes: list of forbidden sub document types for a given
      container. Useful when you inherit from another container type and want to
      restrict its subtypes.

      - default-view: this view will be returned when accessing the document.

      - create-view: this view will be returned when creating the document.

      - edit-view: this view can be used to display the document default edit
      page.

      - views: other views can be defined, so that they can be customized easily
      and trigger specific behaviour. For instance, defining a view named
      'after-edit' on the document will allow to parameter which view should be
      displayed after the document edition.

      WARNING: the views definitions and associated behaviours may change in the
      future. You should avoid customizing more than default-view and
      create-view for now.

      - layouts: the list of layouts to use in a given mode. Usual modes are
      "view", "create" and "edit". When no layouts are defined for a specific
      mode, layouts for the mode "any" are taken for document rendering. An
      additional mode is "listing": layouts defined in this mode are used in
      templates listing children documents.

      - content views: the list of content views to use in a given category.
      Categories depend on the page displaying the content views. Available
      since 5.4.0. By default, all content views are shown in the export view of
      the document (available since 5.4.2) except when adding
      showInExportView="false" on the content view definition.

      Example:

      <code>
        <type id="Domain">
          <label>Domain</label>
          <icon>/icons/folder.gif</icon>
          <default-view>view_documents</default-view>
          <subtypes>
            <type>WorkspaceRoot</type>
            <type>SectionRoot</type>
          </subtypes>
          <deniedSubtypes>
            <type>File</type>
          </deniedSubtypes>
          <layouts mode="any">
            <layout>heading</layout>
          </layouts>
          <layouts mode="listing">
            <layout>document_listing</layout>
            <layout>document_listing_compact_2_columns</layout>
            <layout>document_listing_icon_2_columns</layout>
          </layouts>
          <contentViews category="content">
            <contentView>document_content</contentView>
          </contentViews>
          <contentViews category="trash_content">
            <contentView showInExportView="false">
              document_trash_content
            </contentView>
          </contentViews>
        </type>
      </code>

      Types extension point provides merging features: you can change an
      existing type definition in your custom extension point provided you use
      the same identifier.
