U4-3006 - Legacy DataTypeDefinition API will not function with new property editors

Because we've changed Property editors to a new format the IDataType/IData is no longer in use, therefore the methods in the DataTypeDefinition APIs may not work as expected especially with the GUID -> Property editor alias changes.

Notably the DataTypeDefinition.Import method will not work.

If you have a property editor with a GUID -> Alias mapping and the new property editor has a v6 IDataType predecessor than it will continue working, however if you have a pure v7 property editor without a predecessor than you may run into issues.

Highly recommended to use the new Services APIs instead.
