The ZCML registration process remembers which configure.zcml 
was loaded, this means you can load a configure.zcml more then once.
It only get's loaded one time. (The first time)

If you duplicate a directive directly in a configure.zcml
then it ends in a duplication error. 

This is needed for some use case where you have to load 
a configuration befor they is loaded normaly. (If you add
own packages and have to use some configuration.) 
Because the packages are loaded in a alphabetic 
order. Menus are a good example for this.

btw, this is useful if we don't have different layers
e.g. application layer in 3rd party packages.

This is related to Zope3. I think this is similar to Five.
