For creation, this was already required in the past. For startup, while 
such a change can be fine for 7.0, if we go for it, we should make the 
equivalent change for VMs too (requiring the 'image' content type to be 
configured for the relevant storages upon startup).

Note that it's not necessarily the storage type which does not support 
'rootdir', it could simply be that the concrete storage is not 
configured for 'rootdir' content type. So the error message should use 
the storage ID instead of the storage type.

Same as above.
