Wow. You do know that's over four years old, right?
Are you stuck with that version for some reason?

Unfortunately I can't make sense of the above... it was a non-sequitor. 
Let's split those up, or you can explain how you think they're related:

Why?

That normally has nothing to do with DOM. 
Typically, the form would just submit to a url that resolves
to a script, and that script will get the value from the
request. See the chapters "Basic Zope Scripting" and "Advanced Zope
Scripting" in the online Zope Book, at
http://www.plope.com/Books/2_7Edition 
Sorry if you've read all that before, I may be totally missing
your point.

Personally I've never seen ZDOM before.
AFAICT from a very brief look, it's nothing but a different way of
traversing the zope object tree.  Possibly convenient at times
but I don't see anything there that can't be done with the "normal"
zope APIs.
