The one thing I am missing is: why?

Well, Zope moved onwards from PAS to PAU and I think Plone should too,
- PAU is way more pythonic and cleaner than PAS/PlonePAS, it is
easier to write   stuff for PAU;

More pythonic or not...writing a PAS plugin is fairly easy and trivial.
We have to maintain APIs that we were using for a long time for the sake
of backward compatibility (for the sake of plone users and the sake of plone PAS developers). I want API stability. I don't want to change my code just because someone means that a layer would be nice. We already have enough various spots in side Plone where you have at least two choice for implementing things with different technologies..please not yet another such spot.


- we should use as much as possible of Zope3 and avoid custom solutions,
  increasing the mutual benefit of all Zope3-based projects.
