I'll provide feedback for a few parts of your proposal.

Few developers care about XML-RPC these days. Most web developers are
now working with REST, JSON, and other similar stuff. It's probably
best to move all XML-RPC artifacts, including those in zope.publisher,
to a single package, so that most developers can safely ignore the

You need Jim Fulton's input on this. I think his latest opinion is that
zope.container should have nothing to do with publishing.

In zope.app land, sometimes IHTTP* really means INonBrowser*. In other
words, sometimes people want to define views just for HTTP ports not
intended for web browsers.

FTP is in the same boat as XML-RPC. Today, very few developers care to
provide a dynamic FTP view of anything. WebDAV usually wins over FTP
because adding SSL to WebDAV is easy. All FTP artifacts should move to
a separate package.

The names you proposed seem ok.
