Not sure if I understand you correct. But what do you think 
about the following:

- implement a new optional attribute useLocal=True
  in the directive and then configure the directive action
  and make use of the (local) getSiteManager method.

I like to use getGlobalSiteManager by default because this
doesn't force a database access and load the local site
manager if the site is a local site.

My personal goal is to avoid any Zope database access which is 
not really needed. Because we use MongoDB as object storage
and we only have a few items in the Zope database. Things
like a local component registry get only rarly used and loaded
in our setup.

Could this be an alternative concept and fit?
