The CMF (and Plone on top of it) work *fine* as they are today for
completely empty expressions.  Reverting the BBB-incompatible cahnge,
and adding deprecation warnings, is our standard practice here.

The "empty element" (as opposed to "empty expression", which is what CMF
/ Plone use) hasn't worked in qute a while, AFAICT.
'unrestrictedTraverse' raises a KeyError in both 2.8 and 2.9.

Yes, but you can't break the CMF in a release without doing the
deprecation dance first.

They I guess we should update the external for Five on the branch, and
