I'd say types are meant to deal with use cases where you don't have
configurations properly setup to get only the type you want. Most of the
time I prefer to use only conf, with no type filter. But it's only my point
of view, maybe others think differently.

The problem is that it will fail if there is no "sources" conf. Not sure if
it's a real problem, we may assume that it's mandatory to declare a sources
conf if you override the metadata of a module on which m2 modules depend. So
I'm ok for transitive-sources->transitive-sources(sources)
