I'm the developer behind ZMAPI. I'd be very interested in writing a ZMAPI connector module for CME MDP3 and that would support MBO book as well.

Does CME let private persons access their MDP 3 platform for private use only? And if so, then what kind of fees do you think they will charge?

Interested about this. Do you have direct access to CME MDP3?

Interesting project that you're attempting. As for pricing, CME does let private persons connect directly, it's only an issue of cost and not an issue of qualification.

If you're distributing the data real-time, it's mainly the $96k/year license fee plus the 10G handoff which is $12k/month but you can share it under a vendor for maybe 10-30% of that. For this pricing most vendors I know choose not to act as the distributor and instead they license the feed handler.

Yes I have direct access. I might work on a project to provide the data on a historical basis first in case people want that, but I think live distribution is just too much work right now.
