In my last project, reusing the ZMI seemed like a good idea. Maybe
that was a bad choice. Do you start with an empty site.zcml? I

We started mostly from scratch, with various successes and failures as
we tried to reuse large-scale UI/framework. I'd say that we've
generally been happier and more successful reusing lots of small
components and small-scale UI bits, versus large "framework" things
like the ZMI (others with whom I work, feel free to disagree ;-). I
regard the "smaller zope 3" and "eliminate zope.app" movements as signs
that this is a shared feeling.
Ah-ha, that's a real nugget of wisdom. The ZMI as a whole isn't ready
to be reused, then. In fact, the ZMI may not make sense at all for a
lot of projects. I'll keep that in mind.
