Who says you have a use for the product I create? Or if it makes
sense to catalog it? If you want a cataloguing framework, why
dont you use CMF or something?

The point is, it makes no sense to catalog Pagetemplates,
Python Scripts, Folders and ZSQL Methods, Mailhosts
and Database connections. These are all standard zope
objects, yet they make catalogable content only in derived
work or when they play together - which is a custom
solution anyway. There you can add whatever cataloguing
awareness you want.
