SharePoint Designer see's the field as "Text" not "List Item ID"

This is an excellent Custom Field, however, I’ve now attempting to link the field in a SharePoint Designer Workflow, but the Custom Field is not on the list of available Fields to select.

To re-create: select "Set Workflow Variable", create a new variable and select Type as "List Item ID", then try and assign it a value... Other Lookup Field Types appear on the list, but not this extended field type...


I've played around with changing <Field Name="InternalType">Lookup</Field> and <Field Name="ParentType">Lookup</Field> but still can't get it to work...

Is this a bug with Custom Field Types?
