Hmmm.... CMF skins (templates, Python Scripts, etc.) all work via
acquisition;  "placeful" scripting in general relies on it heavily.
There is admittedly a lot of extra machinery in place to make sure that
CMF objects select the "right" templates, based on their 'portal_type',
but CMF / Plone / CPS wouldn't work at all without the ability to
acquire software.
