Its designed to be biblio -> biblioitem -> itemtype -> borrowing rules
This is how koha is used by the libraries I support running 2.2
So it can be done in 2.2, Itemtype is at the biblioitem level not at the
biblio level for precisely this reason. You dont want to have to have a
differe biblio for each type of an item.
If you jump on irc sometime Gavin I can show you it working
