I like those simplifications, but  I have two little objections...

The factory directive particularly within the class directive is very 
convenient and I use them fairly often. So I would miss that shortcut, 
because it saves a few lines of replicated code :(

In addition the coupling of class/factory and class/implements is very 
concise and handy too, if you like to include 'external' packages into 
your application. In such a case I don't like to write an extra modul 
for the factory implementation and the class-implements-declaration. IMO 
this use case is focused to a component registration aspect and zcml 
would be the right place to cover it.

I would vote to leave at least the class/factory and class/implements
