Class{ifying} Custom Post Types / Developer Edition
Anatomy of a
1. A post is a database row entry.

2. A post has *unlimited amounts of relational data, stored in another table. We call them "post_meta".
Anatomy of a
Taxonomy - Method of Organization, a classification, a type of something, means of grouping
*(Carstens Definition)

Is-a and has-a relationships
Post (Content) Type Registrations
Default Registrations: post, page, attachment, revision, nav_menu_item

Custom Registrations:
Assess Fields vs Taxonomies
Custom Fields: label and value (complex values stored in serialized arrays)
Custom Taxonomies: organizational attributes or units, often relationships

Pick One? Almost any custom data you store COULD be stored in either. Beware of processing time required for taxonomies.
Build yourself a helper class (or use mine)
Build a template class, and extend it, making future CPT's simpler to create (this is OOP).
