My reflex would have been to remove the unused node type, because I'm reminded of
It seems that perfection is attained, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing more to take away. (Antoine de Saint Exupéry)

    A perfectly valid point. However, deleting stuff in the Everything engine leaves gaps in the node ID sequence. And leaves people with questions. That's exactly what happened with Guest User. The general attitude amongst the developers has been to leave things where they are, and mark them as "unused" or something like that. Who knows - maybe some day we'll have a need for a 'file' nodetype...
