Yes, that's the reason. I also replied to your comment on the website, 
which I saw first.

There are two wishlist items I'd like to see implemented at some point:

a) a way to create local utilities for existing persistent objects.

b) a way to have local but non-persistent utilities. That's useful to 
have different behavior in just one application and still avoids 
persistence issues. The architecture of Zope 3 supposedly supports this 
at some level, but I don't know how. Not sure whether the *registration* 
of such a non-persistent local utility needs to be persistent or not.

a) is more easy to get going than b) - it mostly needs a thorough design 
discussion before coding can begin. b) is more of a research project. 
Volunteers are welcome.
