If your application can't be written in five minutes and you expect to use
it more than once, you shouldn't use ZClasses - IMO.  The only argument
for ZClasses (that I had at the time) was that it was very easy and fast
to set up a couple of classes and some instances.  After I wrote mk-zprod,
making Python Products is even faster than ZClasses, and certainly scales

If you ask me, it would be better to streamline the Zope API a bit and
focus the effort on making it easier to start developing Python Products
at first go, instead of stopping by ZClasses.  I can't see the rationale
for ZClasses, but I'm sure there is one.  Right?

I seem to recall some fuzz about Python Products starting be "alive" in
the Zope instance (ie. behaving much like ZClasses) in a future release.  
I don't know if that's a good thing or not, but if it means ditching
ZClasses I'm all for it.
