Answering myself. I have a workaround:

In mywidgets.py:

  from zope.app.form.browser import MultiCheckBoxWidget as MultiCheckBoxWidget_
  def MultiCheckBoxWidget(field, request):
    vocabulary = field.value_type.vocabulary
    return MultiCheckBoxWidget_(field, vocabulary, request)

In the configure.zcml:

  <addform
    name="add_foo"
    label="Add Foo"
    schema=".interfaces.IFoo"
    fields="filetypes"
    content_factory=".foo.Foo"
    template="foo.pt"
    permission="zope.Public"
  >
  <widget
    field="filetypes"
    class=".mywidgets.MultiCheckBoxWidget"
  />
  </addform>

Probably there're better ways to do this...?
