I haven't followed this discussion in detail, but I do have some input: 
I remember when we first implemented viewlets I struggled quite a bit 
with what they should associate with by default and couldn't figure it 
out. I don't think I thought of this option yet.

I'm fine with making such a modification in grokcore.viewlet. Do make 
sure that the tests still work and add new tests. If you need to 
*modify* the tests (meaning the existing behavior changes), we need to 
write good upgrade notes that tell people what changed and what they 
should do.

Soheil, are you a svn.zope.org contributor? If not and you'd like to be 
able to contribute, please read this:
