Low-quality metadata from PDF: Create "Document" instead of "Journal Article"

When there's metadata of poor quality from a PDF file, the parent items are currently created as "Journal Article" items. I think such "Library Catalog: Zotero" items might better be created as "Document" items. That's what the "Create Parent Item..." function currently does by default.

I guess the idea was that "Journal Article" items are the most common ones, so importing them that way minimizes the changes needed later on. But if you don't know anything about the item type, "Document" might be the better option, since it should be less confusing, especially for less experienced users.

This might address some of the concerns raised in this discussion:
