It makes little sense to index the contents of PTs. PTs are used to present 
a view on a particular instance of your class but not for providing content

This is not the question. If you need catalog awareness, either implement 
it as stated above or use one of the frameworks....little need to discuss 
the pros and cons...by default Zope default content-types  don't depend on 
the catalog. CMF and Plone depend on the catalog for various reasons. If 
you have the requirement to use a catalog you have the mentioned options.
