When i speak about zope with my friends or tell about zope to my boss i allways 
use "Zope Framework" name.
Zope Framework was from beginning the "natural" name for zope3 for me.

When i thing about Zope3, i think about Zope Framework
When i thing about Zope2, i think about Zope2

Just my 0.02 cents :)

Roman Lacko
