Yes. Similar code as used for creating File objects should work for any 
content. But ContentAddFormBase is new and not very well tested, so you 
might find some bugs.

Note that the add view is registered for the container interface, not 
IAdding. zope.formlib still uses IAdding by default, but z3c.form doesn't.

Yes. Missing is the integration in the CMFDefault add menu. For now the 
new 'add_file' action is used for showing the link to 'addFile.html'.
