That woould imply the transitive closure of their dependencies, which
- - zope.event
- - zope.i18nmessageid
- - zope.interface
- - zope.component
- - zope.schema
We would need to finish trimming off the zope.component extras, first.
Once done, those pacakges are all essentially "libraries," and could be
managed as a "chunk."

Fleshing out the in-package narrative docs for those packages (or
perhaps for the set?) would be pretty valuable, too.
