After some thinking I realized that it's not a good idea to cover the entire
registration in tutorial.  So, we can create a separate reference documentation
for these kind of basic view registrations.  Also we can give an overview of
registrations from tutorial. The practical approach would be to use a package
like z3c.layer.minimal, but it's bit outdated.  We should update that package
and provide documentation also.
