Cc'ing in Alec - I'm sure he has experiences to share from creating and  
using plone_schemas.

Alec - you have indicated that you may be interested in working on  
plone_schemas more. Perhaps that work should sit at the CMF level?

In the context of Plone, it's also attractive because it may provide us  
with a lighter and better integrated alternative to Archetypes, which in  
itself has replaced plain-CMF content type coding in the Plone world  
almost completely. So it's not only about convergence, it's about making a  
fairly fundamental task easier and making it sit at a more appropriate  
level in the stack.
