Remove standard node types from project definitions
Open, NormalPublic

Description

Upgrading node type definitions is now a huge hassle, as each project (including the ca 8000 home projects we have now) have their own copy of this identical data. Furthermore, the structure of the node types tends to be tightly coupled with the implementation (for example the attachments schema).

My suggestion is to remove all node types from projects, and replace them with a list of node type names that have been activated for the project.

Sounds good. We should discuss how to handle node_type properties overrides (for example predefined values, or allowed values).
Probably this makes "migrations" easier, and reduces complexity when validating nodes so it's really exciting!
