In Zope 2.10 (and some earlier versions of Five) the only thing that
views "overshadow" are acquired attributes which should make this all
fine imho.

"*" would be the way to go imho.

We should probably make 'login' a new "reserved" id though so people
don't create content with the name 'login'.  This way /login would
always do as designed and we wouldn't have to worry about instructing
people to do /@@login.  The only remaining danger is if someone creates
their own content classes with a login attribute.
