Hi Raphael, and thanks for your feedback.

It's a thing that I've been thinking about at the beginnig, but it's somehow complicated

1/ All ZCML directive don't register something. In example, collective.monkeypatcher ZCML directive does not register anything

2/ The ones that register something have their own private way to register and registry classes that are not always reflective

3/ To have this "easily" done, this requires that zope.configuration context object (zope.configuration.interfaces.IConfigurationContext) fires an appropriate event to notify a ZCML directive successful "execution". This can't be done without some change in this module.

Any better and simple idea or contribution to do this is welcome.
