That won't work very well in Plone, since "*.cpt" are Controller Page
Templates from CMFFormController.

For Chameleon we decided to use the standard extensions and have it
replace the default engine. Since it's only an engine change and not
actually a change of the template language, I don't see why these
templates should have a different extension. Running both
zope.pagetemplate and chameleon.zpt in the same instance seems like a
non-usecase to me.
