Yes, that's exactly what we do in our libraries.

I'm Ok with simplyfie the zope 3 namespaces and use only one
namespace like <zope:foobar ...>, but not with removing the 
option to add custom namespaces.

I'm interessted in a menu / menu item refactoring.

This means, we could get rid of the implicit magicly 
registred menus in other directives which ends in
unaccessible menu items and will offer a better 
accessible API. I will write a proposal later, but perhaps
I have to prototype first since this part is very complex
and used almost in every browser directive.
