Yes, it was designed to do exactly that.
However, we don't use it as we solve things differently now, but the
implementation is still there, because we found it might be useful.
Maybe Ed should have a look, and check whether it breaks any EMF contracts.

That SynchonizedResourceSet is there to avaoid concurrency issues when
resolving proxies. See https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=312501
I think they don't work well together (even if the first would extend
the latter). Maybe if the referenced resource set is considered immutable.
