I'd agree to that. But this is not "beforehand", there are really large projects
out there.  Given a tree a tree structure such as a file system that can have
very many nodes, not having any means to take advantage of that structure
tree-ness (as project.el clearly doesn't: see the protocol of project-files and
the lack of sub-projects) is going to be a hard limitation.  Monorepos
are really popular in many businesses and many of these are large and/or
getting larger.

It does makes sense to start simple, but ignoring scale rarely yields
the "desired behaviour" unless that behavior is waiting forever.

Example: Git "started simple" then grew sparse checkouts, shallow
clones, worktrees.  You don't _have_ to use these features, but when you
do need them, it's very good that they are there.
