Yes, I think so, if I understand correctly. In general, all the
targlets are composed and are resolved as a single "p2 resolution".
During that process, if any IU resolves to an IU locatable via a source
locator, the source project for that IU will be imported into the
workspace. Similarly, any IU that resolves to a "binary" IU in any p2
repository will be included in the PDE target platform. Note that this
implies that an IU may be resolved in both source and binary form, in
which case it's possible to close the source project so that the other
IUs that require it resole to the binary IU in the target platform.
