I would start issuign DeprecationWarnings (yes, I know I'm their worst
fan, but we can't keep BBB here, so warnings are appropriate) for
positional defaults in 3.9.x.
I think we should also document the "don't call" API better (pure
lookup): there have been use cases for this feature (e.g., "adapt to
scalar / string") floating around for a *long* time now, unsupported.
If that means accepting the zope.registry change Chris proposed, I'm
fine with that.

I can help some with this. Perhaps we should start by fleshing it
*really good docs* (not doctests) for zope.component 4.0, including
careful notes about how to make existing code compatible with both 3.x
and 4.x APIs.
