Single Master Content Type for Content Model

In Jeff Potts' <a href="http://ecmarchitect.com/alfresco-developer-series-tutorials/content/tutorial/tutorial.html#creating-a-custom-content-model">Content Model Tutorial</a>, he seems to suggest using a custom content type from which all of your own content types will inherit as a way to easily organize your content.

However, if I follow this advice and my content model includes types that would ordinarily inherit from cm:content or cm:item, won't I lose the benefits of inheriting directly from those types? Won't I have to, essentially, recreate the types (and create extra work and maintenance)? I feel like I'm missing something important here…

Thanks in advance.
