I think Zope 2 and Zope 3 should be considered completely separate
frameworks, though Jim Fulton's long-term vision suggests they'll be
more closely related in the future.  They will likely remain distinct
even then, since the audiences are a bit different.

I don't think it does.  It just means that *sometimes* Zope 2 users
will be interested in Zope 3 components.  Components may appear that
fit in both categories -- that's ok.
