the question about the hive type suitable for something is actually depending on what you want to achieve. If you are going for STUN (with total), there is no need to observe the hive, or have the ability to analyse what is going on in it. The moment you go for strategic or minimal invasive, or some other not so absolute non interference, the hive becomes a tool for the beekeeper to achieve some goal. E.g. chemical free bee keeping. Both the bees and the beekeepers needs should thus be reflected.
A hive for STUN (with total) will provide no honey harvest (but pollination), and will look much like thomas seeleys swarm boxes. It will have a volume of 40-50l, all natural comb, no means to open it for the bee keeper, neither frames nor movable top bars. The entrance will be small and at the bottom of the hive. Good insulation and good ventilation will help the bees. The wachs moth will deal with old comb and if the bee density is high enough in your area, swarms from your neighbours will populate this box every one or two years. You will put it at least 5m high up into a tree and there is only one every 150m. This hive type would be probably illegal in many regions.
If you are going for something more productive (in terms of honey), the answer is much more complex, will probably also include natural comb, probably a brood chamber of 40-50l volume. It probably will be splitted like a perone hive, into a bees part and a beekeepers part. But you will want at least movable Top-Bars to inspect the hive and help the bees if needed. The beekeepers part, might actually contain traditional frames, to make honey harvest less destructive for the bees and less stressfull for beekeeper and bees.
But hive design is influenced by what you want to achieve, thus the discussion, if a STUN approach is possible at all, and if it is desirable.
