No it is not. I just question why we force everybody to use the new 
location when we did not do so with ISite. It is exactly the same issue 
with two different outcomes.

The canonical location for ISite is zope.location now. It used to 
reside in zope.app.component but was moved to zope.location w/o 
deprecating the use from zope.app.location to keep the API backward 
compatible. I really do not see a differrence to ITerms here.
