Hey Shane,

+1 on separating out zope.publisher.interfaces, as it seems low-hanging

Perhaps zope.browser is the most straightforward location, especially 
given the names of the views involved. Even if zope.browser has unclear 
intent now it'll gain more clear intent from this. That said, 
zope.browser currently doesn't depend on zope.location and it would need 
to gain this as a dependency.

I would prefer if we could make TestRequest also go somewhere else 
(zope.browser?) instead of making zope.publisher a test-only 
requirement. While that step would be an improvement, I think the 
greater improvement would be to find a way to reduce test-only requirements.
