Zope 2 is complicated! It has too many layers of everything.

The reason for Zope 3 is to make it simpler for developers.

Therefore I believe that any succesfull strategy would require Zope 3 to 
be usable completely without all the Zope 2 layers.

If Zope 3 becomes just another layer on top of Zope 2 -> CMF -> Plone it 
will not reduce complexity, as any developer would still need to learn 
the entire stack.

Wherever practical, Zope 2 technologies should be rewritten to Zope 3 
technologies to remove layers from the stack.
