Please take it as given that we both knew that.

That is not possible.  There is no p4a "object type".

No, it doesn't.  Most Plone products install their own content types.  
Modern products install adapters, which don't actually change the original 
types.  At the very worst, when you remove the product, you end up with 
clearly broken objects, which can be searched and deleted.  p4a uses arcane 
Zope 2 hacks, and it can not be uninstalled.  Objects which have been 
modified by p4a throw errors whenever you try to do anything with them - 
including deleting them (you _must_ reinstall p4a to delete them).

Actually, I don't even want to import/export - it's simply a convenient way 
to know if I've managed to finally erase the last vestiges of p4a.
