Probably, I do not understand "content space". At least, I do not
understand why you want to get tools out of it.

Most CMF tools are location specific configurations (catalog, skins,
actions, types, ...) with a bit of functionality.
I do not see a big gain in implementing
them as local utilities rather than their current implementation.

Hm: is their really that big a difference to call "getToolByName"
or "getUtility"?
