There is a mechanism for registering third party schemas in ZConfig.
Zope2 leverages this support, declaring an abstract section type
('<product-config>'), which allows products to register custom section
types (they can also just add simple key value pairs).  The SVN checkins
which enabled this:

  $ svndiff -r 39634:39652 \
    svn+ssh://svn.zope.org/repos/main/Zope/branches/2.9

Products define custom section types in a 'component.xml', which must
then be imported into the zope.conf (via '%import') before a section of
that type may be used.


Zope3 could add a similar abstract section type to its top-level schema,
for use by third-party extensions.  Such a change would *not* require
settling the config-file-format debate.
