There are people who install Zope 2 and then build their websites
through the web exclusively.  Asking them to figure out how to write and
register a utility when they upgrade their 2.12 Zope site to 2.13 is a
bit too much, in my opinion.

Why replace a bad situation with a different bad situation?  How would
you like a piece of software that r?pl?c?d ?ll th? v?w?ls w?th q??st??n
m?rks ??t ?f th? b?x unless you did a highly technical voodoo dance
under the hood?

I would be happy with the other version you pasted in this thread, the
one that tries context.management_page_charset, UTF-8, and Latin-1.
Let's do that instead.
