Public bug reported:

Zope2.12 does not depend on zope.app.container.

Lots of existing packages do use this package for the IAdding interface.
These packages would all needlessly be broken. zope.app.container
already redirects to the up to date interfaces and emits depreceated
warnings. Since zope2.12 is so new and 2.11 afaik did contain that
packages, it would make sense to list  zope.app.container as a
dependency and remove it one or two releases later. Then most packages
should have updated their dependencies.

Third party packages of course could also update their packages to
depend on zope.app.container, but the same time they then could also do
all necessary upgrades for zope2.12, which will take some time. Therefor
I think it makes more sense to add this dependency to Zope2.12
