Then you aren't making an "extension": it is really a "base" profile in disguise, as you want to control types "outside" your profile's scope. I don't want to make it easy for "add-ons" to scribble on other people's types (although yuppie's suggestion would work): the model here is that either you are configuring the site *as a whole*, or you are "extending" it by making "well-behaved" extensions to it.
