I think it should be advertised a bit more when it's something that's ab 
it more generally useful. :)

For now, using raw plone.app.content is still something you should only 
do if you know what you're doing, I think. Better not create confusion 
with Archetypes and the rest.

Of course, if I have my way, you'll only talk to it through Dexterity, 
once it's done. :)
