[Geopackage] gpkg_contents when type is not 'feature' or 'tiles'

I'd like to register my alpha only table (e.g. no geometry field) table in
gpkg_contents as I can then store an identifier
and description for the table and I can also add additional field
information in gpkg_data_columns.

So my suggestion is to create a gpkg_contents record with its data_type set
to 'alpha' (instead of feature).

Req 13 explains the gpkg_contents table for field data_type.

Type of data stored in the table:.
“features” per clause,
“tiles” per clause, or
an implementer-defined value
for other data tables in an
Extended GeoPackage.

So I guess, what I want to do is fine.

Am I right?
