I don't think so. The PAU is quite a big chunk and would really deserve to live on its own piece of land. zope.authentication is really about the authentication basics, not all the pluggability and plugin that PAU brings in. zope.app.authentication is just too confuse as it defines PAU and a whole set of persistent authentication-relatied components and other things that could be easily (logically) cut off.
