As Martijn already deducted, it's for using grokcore in zope 3 with 
model level security. And then you sometimes want to declare how access 
to the adapter is handled, for instance when using it in a form. The 
case I currently have is that I have an lxml tree on one object and use 
adapters to modify various parts of the tree. And since a tree 
basically consists of only one class you cannot do any meaningful 
security assertion there.

Hope that helps.
