Ideally, all the project tests should be executed - using dependencies from the simultaneous release repository.
Projects are free to execute their tests on output of aggregated repo. The process is technically accessible to any plugin developer:
* Take a target Eclipse (for example M7 with everything installed)
* Install your tests in this target Eclipse
* Use Eclipse test application to run automatically your tests on this platform (./eclipse -application org.eclipse.test.uitestapplication ....)

IMO, it's the responsability of the project to run those tests, not another step for the aggregation process. This could be a new requirement to signoff before the simultaneous release (By M7 with current yearly approach): "Run project tests on a full execution environment".
