I don't think having commands to create a project is really

like by placing some special file in the project root, or even by
defining a few Emacs variables, that is enough.

'git init' would do the trick. No extra files (for the VC project backend, at least), nor having to change any variables.

I disagree about useless, since most users deal with existing projects
99% of the time.

In Emacs?  Can you give examples of such existing projects,

An Emacs repository checkout itself, for instance? Or about any other project where VC recognizes a root.

With 'M-x project-find-file' or 'M-x project-find-regexp' while being inside the directory tree of any of such projects.

I thought you've tried and used these commands already.
