I also think we should avoid the context switch to the ZMI. We were  
advocating this all the time. I think we should have a site configuration  
like we have now and another one for advanced stuff. The advanced one  
should have a big warning like "Be sure you know what you do here, or you  
will shoot yourself in the foot. We decided to not hide the gun, but we  
warn you about it's use!". I certainly wouldn't care about a policy to  
move configuration to the ZMI just because it's more complex for stuff I  

I know giving people to many options is bad, that's why I think there  
should be a difference for standard configuration and advanced  

I also think optilude has a point in providing some configuration only via  
local utilities to the developer. But this should be done in a sane way  
and not require overrides.zcml or something like that. It should just be a  
matter of subclassing aan existing utility, change some variables and  
register it locally for the site it should be used for.
