Content objects are usually dull. The only thing they do is store data.
If you're using ZODB persistency, then a content object can be two lines
In particular, content objects often have no methods and they definitely
don't deal with the request. This is left to views. So, somethign in
your app needs to deal with a request, write a view.

That seems like a backward approach. The fax body will probably be
rendered using other views. The body rendering view should pull in other
views. Not the fax object itself.

Don't mix storage and presentation :).
