No, you don't.
zope:adapter has a bunch of automation to look for the interface of
something and what it adapts on the factory. This works if the factory
is the class itself, but in this case, the factory is a class which has
instances which can provide an instance of the annotation class when
This may not be documented as well as it should be, but not for lack of
1. You can always provide the interface provided by an adapter
when you register it.
2. If a factory declares that it implements a single interface,
then you can omit the interface when registering the adapter.
If a factory is a class, it typically declares that it implements
an interface via the implements call in the class statement.
If a factory is not a class, and if it allows attributes to be
set on it, then the interface.implementor function can be used to make
declarations for it. This is documeted in zope/interfaces/README.txt
