I would strongly advice against building on top of the ZMI. It's dated 
and as you say, in DTML. It's also too geeky to be acceptable by any 
client of mine.
Personally I'd build something standalone that you have ultimate control 
over. You can still use things like manage_renameObjects() in your own 
mnagement interface; which you'd be able to replace once you move to zope 3.
