Depends.  If your type has any other customizations (e.g., workflows,
caching policies, metadata constraints, etc.) then you need to tweak the
releavant tools, as well.

I would recommend doing this as follows:

  - Start from a "clean" site, created via "Configured CMF Site" (so
    that it uses the GenericSetup tool and the "baseline" profile).

  - Add your type information, skins, etc. and test.

  - Once everything works, visit the 'portal_setup' tool and create
    a new snapshot.

  - Compare that snapshot against the "initial_configuration" one,
    to review your changes.
