As so often, I have quite different opinions.
In your (stripped away) example, I saw lots of magic (e.g. "grok.context",
"grok.name", "@grok.action"). "ZClasses", too, have their magic.
But, there, the magic is supported by a graphical UI which helps
For me (several years back), Zope's TTW capabilities have been
a major reason why I got interested in Zope.
Had I then seen the nasty ZCML files so much liked in Zope 3, I
would probably have turned away very rapidly.
