Your expectation about good management of dependency versions we know from JBoss Tools and our attempt to get a build running for Eclipse next release just never works.It does for the base platform, but very rarely beyond that.
At some point, I believe the IDE has to "lead" the ecosystem, by being more helpful to its users, including allowing updating from Mars to Neon, and that 3rd-party in the ecosystem have to adapt accordingly or die. Eclipse IDE doesn't have to handle all the pain created by 3rd party plugins and should be really focusing on its users more than on all the possible ways for 3rd-party plugins to mess it up.
