Right, sorry. I've been out of the loop. I haven't been keeping up
with the latest goings on.
FWIW, I recently needed to emulate this machinery for "Basket" so I
can sympathize with wanting to make it saner, but I question the
wisdom of deprecating 'methods'.
IMHO, we should ignore the fact that the lookup for "methods" attrs
comes after the comment that says "Support old-style product
metadata". registerClass does not provide an automated way to do
what "methods" does. The "new regime" way to do what it does would
be to use a Five view, but this wouldn't work for non-URL lookups.
So people who use 'methods' now will need to monkeypatch in hideous
ways just like the 'methods' stuff does now, in which case why not

It has been deprecated for at least 6 years now, I just added the
warnings last year.
I don't know the old discussions, but the comments added here make
pretty clear that initialize() was meant to replace
'__ac_permissions__', 'meta_types' and 'methods':
I guess 'methods' was never meant to be used for something else
than factory methods.
As Florent already pointed out using it for general monkey patching
doesn't look like a good idea. We only can improve the product
initialization if we first remove some cruft.
