I need someone to clarify this, but I believe the zetec was offered at one time or another w/o A/C, correct? If that is the case, you just need to remove the compressor, replace it with the non-A/C idler (if it has one) and the belt. The rest of the stuff, you just remove. If nothing else, this will lighten up the car's nose and help out cooling.
Keep us posted on what you find. If I move back home (north), mine's coming off....considering I only use it in Houston when the wife is in the car

As to why, I think seraphim summed it up quite nicely. I'm also surprised I could find no mention of it here.
I'll query the dealership and let you know how that goes.

Actually an average AC unis can steal 20-30hp when on and as much as 10-15 when off. Also they usually weigh around 100lbs including the compresser, pulley and belt so there is a substantial savings there.
I pulled the AC in my Gen II MR2 and got 28 more hp and it weighed around 80Lbs with all the crap. And that 28 hp was off! I'm supprised I have never seen anything about pulling AC here before. It's a classic low cost mod to get more hp for almost no money.
However make sure to go to an AC service shop so they can capture your freon otherwise you can be fined by the EPA for polution and I think it is upwards of $5,000 if you get caught.
