Hi there,
As Christopher Lozinski pointed out, there seem to be usecases where
people want to use single zope.app packages without zope.app.zcmlfiles
and the whole bunch of zope.app packages it pulls in.

I think this is a non-usecase. zope.app is a namespace for the "app" part of Zope. If you want to use a part of this app then it's reasonable to assume that you want the rest: caveat developor!

Would it make sense for these packages to also register ZMI related
stuff only if some condition is met (say: zope.app.zcmlfiles is installed)?

No, having apps trying to guess about their use as library code is a bad idea and should not be encouraged.
