I mean, do you visit them in the same Emacs session?

I just answered that above.  This is all in a single Emacs session.

What I meant is, is there harm in modeling that kind of project as VC project with just lots of exceptions (additional ignores). Or is that just difficult.

OTOH, we already have a customization point that allows to exclude more
files than .gitignore does (the project-vc-ignores variable).

I don't think exclusion alone is enough.  We need also a way of
_including_ files in a project.

It's on my list. As long as we're talking about whitelisting files in the same directory tree.

But also see project-external-roots.

*And* one can use the project API to introduce a project backend that
does not rely on VC repositories.

I think we should have commands to do so in the core.  It's too basic
a capability for any IDE for us to leave it to add-ons.

Commands? Project backends are applied automatically in the current model.
