Thanks.  Yup. I would be +1 on this if the registry itself implemented 
IDictInterface.

If that was untenable, if all the above code lived in the zope.component 
package itself, and you had an API that manifested an IDictInterface object 
when you asked for a "utilities" attribute, that would also be acceptable, as 
long as you could do:

reg.utils['root_factory'] = RootFactory

Where the registry implementation would implement a propery for "utils":

class Components(object):
     @property
     def utils(self, name):
         api = self.queryAdapter(IDictInterface, None)
         if api is None:
             api = DictInterface(self)
         return api

In reality, this will be slow, and nobody is going to override IDictInterface, 
so it would probably be better as:

class Components(object):
     def __init__(self, name='', bases=()):
         self.utils = DictInterface(self)
