Especially going toward p2 (which emphasizes the use of Eclipse update even more as the primary way to install bundles), it seems to me that de-emphasizing using update sites (in favor of packages) is sort of strange.I didn't say "de-emphasizing update sites", I said "don't have two sets of update sites: one central one and N for each project".
Why would that be? Shouldn't your project-specific update site have references to all the other update sites that are necessary to install all the features of your project?
