[ Actually, there are various reasons to split EIEIO, one of them would
  be to try and fix the eval-and-compile mess.  ]

Right, one possible approach is to try and delay the use of
project-root, as is done for VC: have a preloaded ede-hooks.el file
which is just enough to try and detect projects that use EDE, and then
only load EDE if/when opening a file in such a project.
