Yes, that's my conclusion too. We already have grok.Site now.

As to grok.App:

I propose a 'grok.App' mixin for grok.Model and grok.Container. It's 
actually also a grok.Site.

I also propose grok.getApp() to actually get to the app. The app gets 
set during traversal as a thread-local in a very similar way to the way 
the site gets set.

Inside of grok we also generate a list of the registered apps. This list 
can then be used to do menu registrations and such stuff.
