<snip big discussion on project-runtime binding>

Project facets (which you get for free from WTP) is the obvious framework to manage this. They were designed to handle this requirement - restricting the capabilities of a project to match the capabilities of the associated runtime (if any). Note the user does not have to choose a runtime - facets can exist on their own - but if a runtime is chosen (or changed) then compatibility is enforced by the facets framework.

This discussion is an echo of one on wtp-dev that lead to the introduction of the facets framework in WTP 1.0
