All data we have now is relevant for path creation now or in the future, while I cannot see the difference between paths being tooled by an SK40 or SK50 cone.
As I said in the post with the data, the dimensions for the taper section are greyed out because we don't need them, however the taper number determines the size of the holder flange that is external.
If you look at any professional CAM software all this data is included and the software will determine if there are collisions between the tool, the holder and anything in the model. This is especially important when doing rest machining or multiaxis work.
Have a look here (skip to 20 mins):
Maybe I've miss understood the intention and direction for what is trying to be achieved with the path workbench.
