Yes. Zope 3. ;)
Zope 3 adresses several of these questions, especially the separation
of presentation from logic on a class bases. And of you can't use Zope
3, then you can use the same principals under Zope 2 thanks to the
Five is included with Zope 2 since Zope 2.8.

No problems at all. Nuxeos new calendar product is done exactly like
that, even to the point that the base classes are in a separate
product (CalCore) that could be used outside of Zope, the UI is in
another product (CalZope) that provides all the pages, and we have
integration with CPS in a third product (a Plone integration,
CalPlone, is in progress).

Well, I guess that's pretty much what zope 3 does. The presentation is
done in separate classes called view-classes.
