currently I'm working on a master data management system in Drupal. We've got products for different sales channels (like ebay, magento, amazon etc.) On field where I'm struggling is: Category (CatEbay, CatMagento, CatAmazon, etc.) for one and the same product.
Two options: Add more fields to a sales channel (content type) or add different sales channels. If I've got different sales channels, I need to implement a relation as well as the translation might be tricky.
If I simply add several category fields, it doesn't look very nice, but makes everything quite easy.
There is something like: https://drupal.org/project/bundle_inherit but does it work with translation or export node + it's alpha2 and we are in a production environment ... maybe it just adds complexity without a lot of benefit.
Would there be a disadvantage to point out by going the 'adding fields' way?
