A project could specify a list of major-modes, couldn't it?  That
would generally derive from the project's "purpose" or "goal", for
lack of a better word.  For example, a project where you build a
program would have prog-mode or some of its descendants in the list,
and perhaps also Texinfo and/or markdown for docs.  A project whose
purpose is to write an essay or a blog or might use descendants of
text-mode.  Etc., etc.
