Sorry, I think I mixed with zope.formlib. In any case I hope to find
the answer to the orignal question.

The original pattern which I copied is is here:

I don't think I am doing it incorrectly. The other reason of using
this pattern is that the behavior factory does not need to have a
write or (an extra) object load if the behavior is never set on the
context object. The default object returned by factory acts similar
than the persistent object and I can set the behavior defaults using
zope.schema - I don't need to do "if not set" logic anywhere else in
my code.
