Specifying the JRE dependency of a Java project as an execution environment provides a number of nice benefits (such as making the project easily portable between systems since it will pick up and use any installed JRE that is compatible with the selected EE). However, we have found that the set of restrictions (namely, the forbidden references) imposed by the EEs is often too limiting for our purposes, forcing us to define the target JRE as 'Workspace Default' or 'Alternate JRE' which causes a lot of undesirable pain.

We ship a JRE with our product, so we know that we could safely remove some of the forbidden references from the JavaSE-1.8 execution environment, but cannot find a way to add a custom version of the JavaSE-1.8 execution environment short of writing an Eclipse plug-in. In a perfect world, a custom EE could be defined using a file in the workspace and actually checked into to version control. Is this currently possible? What is the simplest method to add a new Java Execution Environment to Eclipse?

That's an interesting feature request, but I think you'll find the JDT team doesn't participate or monitor this forum as much as you might expect. I suggest writing to the JDT mailing list to spark some discussion.
