Just out of curiosity, which dependencies does Plone 3.0 have that

2.10 really is lovely, because Zope 3.3 is lovely. :)
The local components story is much, much better. Look at Hanno's
GSLocalAddOns package (which really should move to CMFCore once
CMFCore is happy to require 2.10+), or other examples. Basically, it
solves a lot of the problems we had with 2.9 and earlier in that it
was hard to make things installable into a CMF site - a global
utility or adapter was an either-or proposition for all sites in a

Plus, the whole story around formlib, zope.contentprovider,
zope.viewlet is improved, (these three tools are great - if you
haven't played with them, go read the doctests, or Rocky's formlib
tutorial on plone.org) and Five has caught up to these to make them
accessible to us.
Personally, I'm neutral on moving the requirement for CMF 2.1 to Zope
2.10. Obviously we're not using any of those new features yet, but it
would be nice to enable their use by mandating 2.10. CMF 2.2 will move
the bar higher I'd wager.
I'd love to hear some kind of yay/nay for making Zope 2.10 the required
platform for CMF 2.1 from some other people like Tres, Yvo, Florent etc.
One thing that would be good about this is that the CMFUid suite could
be deprecated in favour of an implementation based on zope3's intids
There was a discussion a while back about the future of that package:
