Yes, every time a base is created, a /base/foo/topic type is created.
It is automatically made an included type of all types created in the
base (including CVTs), although it can be removed. It's sole purpose
is to assert that a topic is "in" a base. I've found it to be
primarily useful in creating saved views when I want a more complex
logic than the current table view creation logic permits, and
otherwise sort of in the way.
