Thanks for the tip... I thought restrictedTraverse is slower because 
it has to do security checks?

It causes this exception:

Error Type: AttributeError
Error Value: edit_htmlaq_parent

My product inherit does have implicit acquisition. But HTMLFile 
doesn't - that's the whole problem. Replacing HTMLFile with DTMLFile 
solves the problem, as DTMLFile derives from Acquisition.Explicit.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

P.S Now that aq_parent is working... why can't I do absolute_url() on 
DTMLFiles :-(
