A baseline profile is registered as providing a different interface:


The best way to get such a beast is to export the "all steps" tarball
from a working site and unpack in in your profiles directory.

Per $ZOPE210Products/Five/skin/configure.zcml, sort of:  that is the
only registration in effect for that name in Zope2.  The view class,
Products.Five.skin.standardmacros.StandardMacros, has a '__getitem__'
which actually looks for the name ('page' in this case) in any one of
three templates:  'five_template', 'widget_macros', and 'form_macros'.
