Maybe, but I find that people confuse the machinery in zope.publisher with a bunch of additional and very confusing machinery in various zope.app packages. The publisher itself is pretty simple. I think this is illustrated by paste.txt in the zope.publisher package. That isn't to say there might not be better models. Hopefully, I'll find time to study your pipeline ideas. I wish there was a proposal I could read rather than reading code.
