Finally, you'd have to hex edit any pokemon with the new type manually, because there are no editors that would support it currently.
Or, even worse, they don't have a type table and it's all based inside a routine. :O
Also, the fact that most ASM hacks don't go too far because programs won't support them could be fixed
easily: open-source coding!
Unfortunately, all the code devs on this site seem to be either not willing to share their code, or they make a tool and then loose the code (me). Also, if they were open source, it'd make porting to Mac OSX and Linux a ton easier for the people and developers of the tools. (An example, when NSE 2.x's source was released, I managed to port it to Mono, which makes it possible to run on Mac
Linux.) Also, if a new hack arises, someone can fork a project to add it, and then have it merged into the main project.
