Your patches look pretty reasonable to me:  can you kick them into
Launchpad so they don't get lost in the mailing list archives?  There is
a project page for zope.app.testing, but it doesn't (as of today) have
the bug tracker turned on.

 https://launchpad.net/zope.app.testing

For now, the Zope3 tracker is the right place for zope.app.* issues:

 https://bugs.launchpad.net/zope3
