Why not? It actually makes it more easy to write generic other 
contextable classes - no more hardcoding in grokkers about what the 
possible contexts are. I quited liked it, as it works and it's simple.

I also think it is useful for instance when we want to introduce 
ORM-backed model and container base classes, or in general when during 
traversal you want to create objects that aren't persistent. Of course 
grok.Model works just fine here as well, but it's a trifle cleaner not 
to involve the Persistent base class at all.
