I'm trying to convert a Drupal 7 site to Drupal 9 before D7 reaches EOL, and I had a custom module that had a lot of custom tables defined in Hook Schema, that would be joined together in different ways to handle a multi-step form made with the ctools form wizard. This site was originally created in Drupal 6, and updated to Drupal 7 while doing the minimum changes to the custom modules, so it predates the concept of Entities. The database structure of those tables is normalized, in 3rd normal form, because if you flattened it, would your end with millions of rows with mostly redundant information. The problem was that those tables existed in their own microcosm, not accessible to the rest of the site.
I've decided to rebuild everything from the ground up when doing the site upgrade, and I've also decided to drupalize this so the contents of these tables can be accessed by regular views, avoiding content duplication. This means that every old table will have to have it's own entity type. Fields will be basefields for performance, since I will need 50-100 fields in total, and every fiend added through the UI requires a join as far as I understand. If I need to add fields in the future, I will do it through a module update, not by adding them through the UI, so I don't need the entities to be fieldable.
After giving you this context, my actual question is, if I will only ever need 1 type of every entity bundle, do I really need entity bundles? What would entity bundles do for me?
