Extending data types for implementations

I have multiple implementations off a common framework. I have a data type and each implementation has its own records. I could add a column to the data type that represents a unique value for each implementation to separate the records by implementation. Is there a better way to do this? Can I use inheritance to extend the data type for each implementation without having to change the code using this data type in my application? Perhaps this data type is used for a dropdown on my UI for example. What does Pega suggest for this? If I extend the data type to my implementation I obviously need to create a new data type. Then I suppose override the data pages and report defs or perhaps I can utilize the feature of a report def to return records from desendant classes instead.
