Certainly if the PDE's bundles were deployed along with the application,
I'd expect it just to work, but I've never been an expert at how all
these tasks work; they're very limiting compared to what you can easily
to in the IDE...

Yes, and personally I think that's better, but I understand it's a bit
of a religious discussion and ties closely to how one feels about
modifying generated code:

Yes and no. You certainly become much more aware of when things change
and why they're changing and of course there's no need to regenerate if
you haven't changed the model. It's also much easier to be sure you
reproduce and ship the expected results, which is especially important
if you must maintain older versions of software. Also, the project
source is complete as soon as you check it out from the SCM, without
needing generator tools installed and invoked them just to have
something that compiles...

Not so much. Sorry....
