Uses for WTPart Object Subtypes

We are exploring the use of object subtypes in our PDMLink
implementation and have a couple of questions for everyone that would
care to answer and see other people's responses as well:

* Are you creating object subtypes, such as WTPart subtypes,
EPMDoc subtypes and so forth?
* If not, why are you not using the subtype functionality? (can be
as simple as "I didn't know we can")
* If yes, what object types are you creating subtypes for
(WTParts, EPMDocs, etc.)?
* If yes, what reasons have you decided to leverage the subtyping
functionality? (i.e.: attribute control, workflow control, etc.) This is
pretty much the heart of the question.
* If yes, what drawbacks and/or pitfalls exist when using
subtypes? (i.e.: cannot switch an object from subtype to subtype, cannot
delete subtype if used, etc.)
* This is an extension of the third sub-question above: What are
the uses for subtyping that you may be aware of?
* What are the various uses for attributes on WTParts that people
are currently leveraging? (i.e.: workflow routing, searching and finding
data based on those attributes, smart numbering, etc.)
* What drawbacks have you experienced with using attributes on
WTParts? (i.e.: cannot delete them from the attribute manager once used,

Please feel free to answer any or all of the above questions that you
may have some input on.

I will catalog all answers, summarize, add info from my research, and
post by EOB this Friday (of course, this depends on whether or not I get
any responses.)

Much thanks in advance.
