>From my point of view as someone who is developping web applications
with z3 the 'hierarchy' is a pro. Imagine two libraries: one with all
the books in a alphabetical order, one with a thematic order. I would
strongly prefer the latter one with the thematic order, which is more
structured.
>From a lerners point of view (for example me) the thematic organization
is a pro too: The z3 beginner will probably need the 'zope' and
'browser' namespaces at first. Browsing apidoc zcml namespaces lets your
knowledge grow fast, because you get structured information.

BTW, I think it's a very flat hierarchy, because it is only three
levels: namespace--element--attribute. That's not deep at all. I would
rather use the term structure than hierarchy.
