Is this a kafkanian situation? Are really core developers asking the
community to kick a used Zope's feature, saying it's because it's hard to
maintain it, and simultaneously to say it's code 'unmaintained and
untouched since ages'?

I have not seen any significant changes to ZClasses since Zope 2.4/2.5 or so (that's when I started working for ZC and learned about Zope). Now they broke in Zope 2.8 and kept up the release and maybe only a small number of people have the wisdom to maintain and fix outstanding issues.

As for ZC,  IMHO the issue should be treated as a matter of understanding
the market rather than achieving a milestone. You created stuff that works
in some way or another that people embraced. You also changed your company
name to the name of the product of yours that people embraced. And no
matter how much hype there is on new trends, you should realize that a
song is just a song until the market say it's a hit, and that X3 is that
song. Shall you start to put Zope2 into pieces before getting to know you
already have a hit?  :)

I don't understand what you want to say with that but ZC also lives from the
community and the community lives to a certain part of the work of ZC. So
is all about giving and taking :-)
