BTW, we discussed this quiet heavily on #zope3-dev.

I think at the end Jim and I agreed that the zope.* namespace should follow 
and keep following the current Zope 3 style guide. Other namespaces, such as 
zc, z3c, lovely, etc can choose their own style guide but must be consistent 
within the namespace. While Jim never acknowledged this final wording, I 
consider silent as consent. :-)
