We are working on a more elegant way to handle this, but for right now I can recall the following  solution that several sites are doing:

referring to your example above, submit jobs of type A to their own schedd (recall you can run as many schedds in a pool as you want), and set MAX_JOBS_RUNNING in the config file for that schedd.  Remember to also specify a SCHEDD_NAME in the config file as well if you run multiple schedds on the same machine (each schedd in a pool needs a unique name).

Hope this is helpful
