I see a third way :

To cut grocore.view meta.py into pieces.
Those pieces would all be grokked by grokcore.view meta.zcml

This way, five.grok would be able to decide what it needs to grok 
instead of including blindly grokcore.view meta.zcml. (If we keep 
grokcore.view meta.py as a single piece, there is no way to separate 
what should be grokked in five.grok from what should not be grokked.)
