Import/Export for simple records or other non-part data

Has anybody tried importing/exporting data that is not stored in a content part but e.g. in simple records? I thought about a fake content type with a fake part for this, but it sounds a bit hackish. Can the import/export functionality utilized outsides a driver?

Thanks in advance.

You definitely need a driver for that. Take a look at projections if you want an example.

Thanks, that's what I feared of. Going with part for this, then.

Is there any way to implement import/export functionality for non-part data?
I want to import/export records from/to recipe file.
