Requesting to expose an api to change the default data

Continuing the discussion from Different schema type for Topics and Posts:

I was recently requested by a client to change the metadata for topics of a particular category to Article. The sense behind it is, they are planning to use blog post styling TC to use one or more categories as dedicated blogging categories.

Due to this not being an additive change, I am seeking advice whether its safe to override show.html.erb template or there’s a workaround to replace that data without requiring to override the whole template. If not, does it make sense for the team to expose an api to replate those parts via a plugin?
