Customizer Folders are for when your application stores data Zope-style, in
an object/folderish hierarchy.  Specialists are for creating application
services.  They are not necessarily mutually exclusive, since an
application with an object hierarchy may still use a Specialist to handle
searching, creating objects, UI snippets, and so forth.

Yes.  As long as you don't have any persistent data stored for the object,
and as long as your application doesn't change anything else in the ZODB.

Set it to the name of an object attribute that is provided from your SQL
data.  When the rack is asked to retrieve an object, it creates an empty
object with an "id" attribute, then tries to access the attribute specified
in this storage option.  If the attribute exists (i.e., the row exists and
is successfully retrieved from your SQL database), then the object will be
returned from the Rack.  If the attribute does not exist (due to the query
failing), the Rack will return None to mean that the object does not exist.
