Who speaks about every time (of an upgrade).
I remember 2 (small) ZClass related problems after Zope upgrades
and 1 time (for Zope 2.8) where ZClasses were not ready
for the Zope beta version.
The Zope 2.8 port of ZClasses was probably a significant effort
(Thank's Jim). It is not unlikely that they will die should another
such effort be necessary.
However, for the next releases, no such effort is on the horizon.
We might see small (unanticipated) problems like the 2 mentioned

It is your choice. I will not argue against it....
