This is an intriguing question and I would answer it differently than all of the above. I would not use "Which" with any kind of qualifier in a noun phrase such as "type of" or "kind of". Which is typically used with the base noun (e.g., ice cream) so the question would be "which ice cream" or "which ice cream flavor would you like" whereas what is used when there is a qualifier "what kind of fool am I?" "what type of music do you prefer" etc. For me the issue isn't one of hypothetical or amount of choice but rather a grammatical issue.
