Yes...you are of course correct. This is just a bit of lazyness on my part at this point.
I need a record in a table for this, but it has no display purposes whatsoever. So, in theory, it shouldn't even be a Content Part or Content Type. BUT...since I'm rendering shapes of other Content Items based on the values in this table, I wanted to use
the existing code conventions I have for Drivers to render the shapes instead of spending the time right now to write the code to generate the shapes directly from the controller (copy and paste are my friends right now).
I'll be changing this later so it's not a ContentPart.
Since this isn't a module for public use and a custom application that I'm developing, I'm taking a lot of liberties =)
Thanks for making sure I'm following the intended design pattern though...very much appreciated.
