Thanks, I temporarily fixed my problem by creating a skin which inherits from 
Rotterdam + IFormLayer, now z3c.form work.

It seems as if the trend is going away from ZMI - is that true? At least for 
me, customizing ZMI for my application is quite painful, it seems a lot 
easier to use z3c.layer instead. On the other hand, ZMI offers some 
functionality, such as add/delete/cut & paste etc. which I'd have to rewrite 
for many applications, so ZMI is quite appealing, too.

Or is it perhaps possible to use such functionality in my z3c.layer.pagelet - 
based skin?
