Thanks for this discussion - I'm loathe to even test Plone4 at the moment 
because I don't know enough about this sort of change.

Surely, though, dependencies on something like CMFCore should be fulfilled 
by declaring the dependency on Plone.  I don't mind having to add 
dependencies to all of my Plone products - I've long suspected some of them 
were not quite clean - but there should be a "plone-minimal" dependency that 
includes all packages that are required by every Plone product.
