I'm fine with the zope.globalrequest package. But it's very
important to understand that this is not a common way to do

It also makes the request/interaction etc. a part of the 
test setup for test components. Probably it simplifies the
implementation but brings in complexity in test testing
an application.

I don't say that this is bad in general. I just say that if
you build an application based on zope.globalrequest, this
is a totaly different base concept how you will develop
applications like we do now. And you have to pay the price
with a complex test setup.
