I'm sure they do, although I'm not immediately aware of them (I would
be interested to hear them though).

I agree it should in any case be implemented by extending the
ZODB-based catalog to have these features, so that you can do this

Absolutely. In fact, I think one of the compelling things with Zope
has been it's ease of installation, because it is reasonably
self-contained, as it includes it's own dedicated database that does
not require any separate complicated setup.
The idea that you with a normal install exe file can install an
enterprise CMS on you windows machine to check it out is a *huge*
plus, and a serious hyping-point.
The enterprise CMS should not require a RDBMS. It should however be a
question of configuration if you want to use one for the parts where
it makes sense.
