Yup, the project-oriented approach is definitely a downside in Eclipse, not just for C/C++, but for any IDEs that heavily rely on external tools. It either makes the IDE behaviour at times somewhat confusing or limiting, or, it places a bigger implementation burden on a language IDE to work around the standard Eclipse way of doing things.
IMO, with the advent of LSP the above limitations are becoming more apparent and important.
Relying on IProject to deliver features in an editor isn't really forced by the framework. It's more a design choice taken by most editor developers (to rely on natures and other stuff which are not available for "plain" files). It's already possible to write rich editors not requiring an IResource. It's "only" a matter of evolving practices not a technical limitation.
