I think "site" is widely understood term in Zope 3 now and everyone knows
about it. We gain absolutely nothing by renaming it. I think "zope.site"

Widely understood, yes. Frankly, I've *never* liked it, because it
doesn't tightly relate to my more casual ideas on what a "site" is on
the web. It compontent registry *can* represent a site in that sense,
but that's as much an implementation detail as anything (IMO).
The existing APIs certainly can't change, but I'd love to see more
reasonable name used for a new package that's less tied to supporting
FWIW, I recently had to explain the concept of a "site" in Zope 3 and
how a Plone site root object is a "site" that has a "site manager" and
... it got very confusing.
