This is an interesting idea --

The Zope server is an Object database that exposes objects and
attributes via various protocol modules.

I can see a future where you'd want to be able to plug in arbitrary
protocol modules -- and perhaps more than one instance of each type of
protocol (for example, http on ports 80 and 8080).

It would make sense to me for each protocol to have its own set of
"expose flags" or even "expose rules" for each addressable

The user interface to manage the objects could collect these all into
one place, so as the manager of an object, you can decide what is
allowed to be seen via which protocols.
