I personally feel quiet offended to see Zope 3 degraded to a set of 
components. Zope 3 in itself is also an application server; Zope 2, on the 
other hand, is an application.

I have not been involved in this discussion. Having discussions like this 
during a conference is good as a starting point, but should never be seen as 
a canonical decision.

So you are saying I have to change Zope 3's story to cope with Zope 2's 
identity crisis? Honestly, degrading Zope 3 to a set of libraries and 
components is marketing poisoning for people deploying pure Zope 3
