Since especially ALM tools by large vendors become more and more specific or see very popular ones like JIRA greedy and also more enclosed to proprietary/paid solutions only, it's good to leave a choice here.
The idea of Mylyn connectors as abstraction is good as long as it works for more than just Bugzilla in open-source ecosystems ;-)

This is true. And that is why we have added a requirement for "freedom

will need to be able for all affected Eclipse projects to be able to
continue unabated.

Agree 100%. Much careful thinking went into this.

So would we all. But since an industrial-grade ALM management project
has not yet appeared, we have to deal with the facts as they are.
