Not to store your objects, no.  You can still use Specialists to
concentrate search methods, constructors, UI snippets, and the like.
Typically, in that configuration some of your Specialists may contain (or
be) ZCatalogs which index selected objects from your FwCS hierarchy.

Not necessary.  If you retrieve your DataSkin as an attribute of its
container, the DataSkin __of__ method will automatically find and bind the
DataManager (assuming you're not using some class that overrides __of__).

Just retrieve the objects from their containers in the normal Zope way.
Ditto for creation - use the standard way of constructing objects in an

Yes, it should.  Likewise triggers, if you want to set up cataloging triggers.

Just use the normal Zope "add list" to create one manually, or call the
appropriate constructors (e.g. SomeZClass.createInObjectManager()).

You want examples?  You forget, this is ZPatterns.  ;)  Seriously, look for
examples of how to create an object by meta_type in a Zope ObjectManager.
