Why not?
It depends on the nature of the entity
If I know now many pagetemplates has an entity I could show it to the user
Because I make some curious use of the objects of Zope, for me every 
object will be a functionality, something the object can do, then I want 
to know everything about the entity

not now but I can develep it if I need

My entity has some default indexes like meta_type or owner, etc but you 
could be creative in order to create new ones. It only depends on your needs

Do you want to store cousins data? you need to create an object that 
stores cousin data

They are funcionality to my entity. If the entity has a functionality 
that sends mails the entity need to has a mail host object but It's not 
important where do you create it if the entity catalogue it (you can 
always find it if you ask to the entity catalog)

don't worry! I want to find them. It's not important what they are or 
where they are

They way to add it (but you point me to find at google monkeypatch isn't 
it? Thanks again)
