I agree with this sentiment. I really hate where ZCML is going. I tend to like
ZCML as an overview for the functionality of a package, so the already
simplified versions of the adapter and utility directive make ZCML much less
useful to me. And Philipp's quest to effectively removing all nested
directives disturbs me even more. I like the nesting; it groups common things
together and saves some typing. I also tend to like writing new ZCML
directives; it's easy.
Having said this, I realize I am in the minority. Thus I will make some
concessions, but I am not going to just agree with everything.
