Seems I'm not the only the one who takes a while to get a round tuit! ;-)
I think there is some merit in your suggestion but I'm reminded a bit of
discussion I had recently with Yuppie about the new add expressions -
although after re-reading it I can't quite put my finger on it but I think
there was something about the limits of actions. Of course, type specific
actions should be okay which reminds me - the deprectation notice is still
on the screen, I thought we were going to take it down again or what's
wrong with type-specific actions?

From the discussions I've had no one is going Zope2 + CMF -> Blue Bream,
the application server formerly known as Zope 3, as it just doesn't work.
What I've found works really well is to use as much Zope 3 as possible
from Zope2 allowing you to migrate at your own pace with a mixture of
PythonScripts and BrowserViews (definitely more manageable over time).
Or, if you have something small and you want to do without
zope.kitchensink, you can try Grok or Repoze.bfg which I hope to use for
my stuff in the future. If you are thinking of going this way I highly
recommend Philip von Weiterhausen's book for a thorough grounding in the
component architecture. Chris McDonough's new book on BFG is worth it as
well because it is based entirely on the project documentation, an area
where we've traditionally been extremely weak.
