Taking a look inside tslib_fe ->type is forced to an integer all over the

Why will this solve your problem? ANYWHERE in tslib_fe the type value is 
int'ed and it will not help you doing this I think!

I also believe you misuse the type parameter for what it is not designed.

Actually, you could just make your own implementation of 
simulateStaticDocument in the same way realurl does it (using that hook).
