Thanks very much for the clarification.

I happened to find that obj.restrictedTraverse(['']) returns the

unexpected, as both obj.restrictedTraverse('') and
obj.restrictedTraverse([]) returns the object itself.

Is this a bug or a feature?

RestrictedTraverse on a list will assume it is a path of ids.
restrictedTraverse on a string will assume it is a URL.

A path of ids that starts with '' is a absolute path, just like a URL
that starts with '/'. So, the path list [''] means the
root/application object, just like '/' means the root/application

However [] is an empty path, and is therefore the same as the URL ''.

So, the above behaviour is expected and as defined.
