this for 3.1.

Shrug, this is a risky change. If something goes wrong there, a lot of code will be screwed. I agree it is fairly trivial to fix, but I would prefer it to be done right. I plan to address the entire HTTPRequest/ Publication/...
issue with the Twisted integration work.

Shrug. :-) OK. I hope the Request is pluggable then, and that it still uses (a descendent of) the current Zope 3 request object.

For a specific application it would be as easy to write your custom

Right, but currently that means you have to define your own server-- and instantiate it in zope.conf rather than the standard HTTP server in order for it to be hooked in. That's relatively easy, but *way* heavier feeling than I wanted. I wanted to add some functionality to the request, not declare a new server type. :-/
