The JEP explicitly states that these would be follow-on projects,
presumably to narrow the scope of this project so that it can get
deployed more quickly.
Once the build system has a model of the project, it will be possible
generate projects configurations for popular IDEs at autoconfig time,
eliminating the need to keep IDE projects in sync with the project layout.
