Not sure why this would matter. The reason you specify a feature below a repository is that it's in that particular
repository that you find the feature.

You can do this provided that all repositories are contributed in the same validation set.
There's an implicit rule that if no features are selected in a repository, then select all. So you will get the desired
effect if you add Indigo and specify one of the features that is already required by the m2e contribution. The 'select
all' rule will then not apply.
A better way of disabling the 'select all' would be great to have. Please file an enhancement request for that.
