Looks very nice, btw.

Under this point of view, I agree with you. +1 for normal document.
Another thing that was mentioned on a mailing list somewere (Zope3-dev?)
was that we *should* have STXDocument, HTMLDocument and
PlainTextDocument instead of the funky CMFDefault document, which tries
to do it all, but would fail miserably if we tried to add reST support

After reading your comments, im +1 on a single Document, +0.5 on a Zwiki
and +0.8 on a Wiki page.
