Does this mean that the developer now has to memorize which classes he
names through grok.name() and which ones he names through id = ""?
Someone not familiar with the internals of Zope 3 will see no reason
why some classes get named one way and some the other, and will always
be having to look up which is which.  This would make Grok slightly
less convenient.

Just a thought.
