No. zope.security style security is very different then Zope 2 style
security. The two are quite unlikely going to merge at any point.

What we get in 2.12 is that Acquisition as used by AccessControl is

Acquisition wrapped via __of__ but has only __parent__ pointers. See
for some more detailed information.
