I've created an Item Type in CE 13 with both Text, Integers and Points properties.
Attached it to a cell.
Placed the cell in a file.
Everything in CE 13.
If I open that file in V8i SS4 I can view the item type data using Element Information but only Integers, Number and Point properties are editable.
I would think text would be the least complicated.
The concept of Item Types was introduced into MicroStation CONNECT Edition as a replacement to Tag Sets. You may be able to view this information in V8i but would not be able to make any modifications as it is not backwards compatible.

While Tag Sets were initially declared obsolete/deprecated when CONNECT introduced, we we told some time ago that they are no longer deprecated. There remain a number of things that Tag Sets can do that Item Types cannot.
You can read Samir Haque's statement about Tags.
