You would have to dig deeper than that. First of all, the basics of MVC - Zend Framework in fact, does not have the model implemented (or at least not in the form of other frameworks).

See "Reason #5" on this page:
http://net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/php/10-compelling-reasons-to-use-zend-framework/

The notion that other frameworks have a "better/cleaner" model somewhat misses the point.  The model is the business logic and underlying data.  The "better/cleaner" idea would be different in every different web application. As the application developer you will be creating this part of the web application, or (if you choose a tightly coupled framework) you will be forcing your business logic into the pre-existing model of a tightly coupled framework.  

Ruby on Rails is a very successful system for application prototyping.  It favors convention over configuration.  In other words, there is a one-size-fits-all mentality about Ruby on Rails.  As a result, all RoR applications follow a similar data structure, which may be good or bad depending on what you're trying to achieve.  Some of the early Twitter problems can be laid at the feet of RoR.  There is a somewhat restrictive nature to RoR.

That is not so with Zend Framework.  You get to choose the structure.
