Sorry, I was a bit unclear here. What I mean is

* if the features that zope provides become easier to use (in 
circumstanses where you would consider other toolkits over zope because 
the traditional Zope-way of doing things becomes an obstacle),

* then zope  may eventually become the tool of choice for any projects 
that need more than setting up a simple website. In my experience, 
virtually any site/application that does not serve static files starts 
growing requirements.

Because the customer's needs and ideas grow with the capabilities of the 
solution, eventually "the simple website" winds up being a more or less 
advanced application. Thus, the feature-set of Zope becomes truly usable 
even in non-ZODB-centric applications.
