One thing that must not pass by unnoticed is that one of the points of
'Why ZCML' is that it allows you to 'do stuff' (configuration?) with
plain python code that wasn't written for, nor depends on, Zope 3

That is, to me, a very important feature. To be able to write some
python module that does not depend on Zope 3 at import time, but is
'hooked into' Zope 3 externally, with ZCML, at 'configuration time'.

As I understand, no other framework out there gives you this.

I would suggest that is a component architecture feature, not a ZCML feature.

true, but zcml + configuration system is how you currently access this feature.

The runtime execution of configuration + having a unified configuration format has been fairly important to creating systems that have to deal with backward compatibility in a transparent, organized way(I'm thinking of Five here).

in zope3 such monkeypatch madness isn't a concern. but zcml isn't used just in zope3 anymore.
