You're right, we shouldn't be calling it zope.localpermission.
Perhaps we shouldn't be calling it zope.app.localpermission either
though, as this implies this package can be mined for useful bits.
But I don't want a naming discussion, so I think we should go for your
suggestion now (zope.app.localpermission which also has the ZMI).

At best right now it can serve as example code on how to accomplish
this. I can imagine some kind of mythical future ZMI the Next Generation
project that would need this. But we cannot afford to care about such
mythical future projects as a community, so we should consider it dead.
We'll see the fact that nobody but me answered your question as good
evidence for this.
