I don't know exactly what a global.asa does, but I'm guessing from
your description that in Zope the equivalent is the root folder.
This has advantages and one big disadvantage: root folder clutter.
Shane has promised to eventually re-release his Transparent Folders
product which will allow us to fix the clutter problem...

Basically, anything you put in the root folder can be referenced
by any object further down in the hierarchy, which will acquire
it in its namespace through the magic of acquisition.
