Apart from this mail I've never seen the Workspace scope. I see the
distinction between Workspace and Project is somewhat similar to the
one between Project and Subproject - there are some properties you set
in the higher level that should never be overwritten and others where
it should be permitted IMHO.

I'm not sure it has been decided to unify properties as they are in
1.x with references to something new (properties 2.x) but I can't
remember anybody arguing against it.

Other than that I think you've summarized the current state correctly
- but maybe that's just because I agree with you 8-).
