Two general comments about the patch. The code itself looks good.

I think your argument for a refactoring would be a lot stronger if the

If we want to be able to add other implementations, should it be
better giving more accurate names to the current ones? If what we have
is ZK-based, I would then replace "Impl" in the class names with "ZK"
or something like that.
