There wasn't much discussion about this.

Some time ago Dieter asked for grouping support: 

And I am missing a way to control the order of the add actions.

The latter could be resolved by making the types tool an ordered 
container. But I tend to use special IActionCategory objects in the 
actions tool instead. They would look up the add actions in the types 
tool and provide features like filtering and sorting.

The current mechanism was never released, so I'd rather change that now 
than after a release.

Don't know. I don't think we have the resources to maintain several 
kinds of full skins for CMFDefault. The browser views should *replace* 
the old skins and z3c.form is quite useful for writing all the necessary 

That would mean that CMFDefault-the-example-application will depend on 
z3c.form. If we are going to split off the forms we need to split off 
all browser views and the profiles that use these views. Something like 
'cmf.app' that includes all the CMFDefault stuff Plone doesn't depend on.
