Zotero item types: List and clarification


Is there a list somewhere of all Zotero types, together with their fields, and how these fields map onto each other when changing types?

My understanding is that the 'type' on the one hand offers formatting via a style, and also helps the user with an icon, but otherwise it's kinda arbitrary, right?

Could there be a 'super type' that has all fields? And the 'super type' then has a field 'format/display as' where you then select commons types that are in CSL (e.g. journal paper, report, statue, etc).

Perhaps you could also select your own icon for that type (from a range of Zotero provided icons or a url)?
