 I can see things getting messed up in the near future as the number of
 products proliferates and meta-types start to clash.
 
 I've already seen weird interactions with products
 PSQL Input Wizard and ZNolk when both are installed I only got
 PSQL Input Wizard despite picking ZNolk from the drop down...
 
 At least if developers can register their meta-types then common
 meta-types won't clash for different products (I can see stuff like
 'news item' and 'link' clashing all the time).
 
 Perhaps limit registration to developers who have published their product,
 I know this probably places an additional burden on the already heavily
 under seige developers, but I think some controls are going to be needed.


IMO, this should be done in each individual Zope server. IE, Zope
shouldn't let you have two meta_types called 'News Item'. In combination
with this, Products should list their meta types.

There is a list of product names on http://www.zope.org/Products. If
meta-types were to include the product name
