The local registry we are already using is persistent, so will be the
new registry, where the main difference is that the new one is smarter
about handling nested local registries and Acquisition wrapped
utilities. The current code looks something like this:

from zope.component.globalregistry import base
from zope.component.persistentregistry import PersistentComponents

from Products.Five.component import enableSite
from Products.Five.component.interfaces import IObjectManagerSite

def enableSite(self, portal):
    enableSite(portal, iface=IObjectManagerSite)

    components = PersistentComponents()
    components.__bases__ = (base,)

where setSiteManager is part of OFS.ObjectManager and defined as:

def setSiteManager(self, components):
    self._components = components

We wouldn't need a GenericSetup exportimport handler for the component
registry when the information wouldn't be persistent.
