So that means Zope 2.12 instead, right?

Do we have an estimate of what that implies on our side?

Generally speaking, I'm a bit uncomfortable with jumping
from Zope 2.10.x to 2.12.x as this will reduce the chances
of reacting to deprecation warnings which is of particular
importance for all our add-on developers. I'm afraid we'll
see lots of broken add-ons without prior warnings.

If there is nothing we can do about this (and it seems so)
we could still consider to have Plone 3.x move to Zope 2.11
with 3.4 or 3.5.

Just thinking out loud (and without knowing myself how much
differences there are between Zope 2.10 and 12 that do affect
us) ...

correct me if that's wrong. If we do want Zope 2.12 I would like to go
through before the first CMF 2.2 beta and do the following:

which will imply the "Zope2 >= 2.12dev" dependency

I think we are targetting Plone 4 at CMF 2.2 and Zope 2.11 at the
moment, so that would be bad for us.

I'm guessing you are not aware that there already is a hard dependency in CMFDefault. In essence, I would not be setting a new policy, I would document the current situation.
