The problem with applying the change to the node type rather than
individual nodes is that the node type modification implies a global
modification of all nodes of that type. We currently don't have the
functionality in place to achieve such large-scale modifications. Thus
the "not yet implemented" message.

I would very much like to see us eventually getting to a point where
we can implement such operations, but that will probably not happen in
the next few releases since the amount of required effort is
considerable. Most likely we'll see a sequence of incremental steps to
support ever larger node type modifications.
