It only is the wrong direction...

It is a big deal to exchange local content with a CMS
in a way as transparent as possible. WebDAV is the standard for
this kind of integration. Many different tools may
access the CMS via WebDAV and they have different ways
to mark their temporary copies -- usually with some
prefix or suffix. I do not know whether
there are tools that use "@" or "+" as prefix. However, I know
that many different special characters are used for such purposes
(".", "_", "#", ...).

Zope should have this way of integration (WebDAV) in mind and work
towards its easy realization and not introduce things
that are likely to make it more difficult (such as
forbidding characters at the start of id).
