1. When "object" is not acquisition wrapped, then "aq_parent(object)"
is not its parent (but "object" itself). Thus, "parent" is
not an adequate term, especially for this use case.
2. We sometimes hear about CMF related problems in the various mailings lists.
Some of them happen often (e.g. extremely sluggish under Win
with "debug-mode on" ;-) ) and therefore merit quite some
effect to get them fixed.
And some are extremely rare
(e.g. "lacking a predefined variable 'parent' bound to
'aq_parent(object)'") and therefore it is doubtful that
the CMF should become more complex to satisfy the respective
use cases -- especially when there are (quite) easy solutions
Based on these considerations,
you have picked a problem of quite low practical importance ;-)
