What prevents you to map ZCML elements to ZConfig sections and their
attributes to ZConfig keys?
Only for "#PCDATA", there is not equivalent in "ZConfig".
But, almost surely, ZCML does not use "#PCDATA"...
I have the feeling that mapping ZCML syntax onto ZConfig
syntax is easier than the other way round (as ZConfig supports
multikeys but XML allows only a single attribute of a given name).
