Did you take a look at dolmen.authentication and menhir.contenttype.user?  
These two packages sit on top of grok and provide authentication and  
custom principals iiuc. E.g. in mehir.contenttype.user.factories there's  
some subclassing of the Principal going on.

I know this does not answer your direct question, so maybe somebody else  
will comment further on it.
