I do -- in principle :-)

When you rename an instance, the instance gets a correct id.

Now, all operations you can do through the web, can be
done programmatically. Either by an external program
based on "ZPublisher.Client" or by an internal script.

Look in the searchable archive to find a post from me that
explains how to determine the necessary function calls
from the management source (if you do not know it already).
An alternative is to look in the Zope object reference
(--> zdp.zope.org).

You may use "ZopeFind" to locate all your ZClass
objects in order to rename them.

Details are left for you.
