Zope 2.6 is old, and it's a beast, including the packaging. If need
be, I can investigate whether removing the instance creation would
make sense at this stage of the release.

I would be okay with that, though I would want to explicitly mention
in the release notes that the use of Zope 2.6 is highly discouraged,
and Zope 2.7 should be used instead, if at all possible.
