The files needed for RCP are a subset of plugins of a standard eclipse
distribution + each architecture specific version of SWT and native launcher
for Apache Directory Studio (which also includes a reorder of folders for
the Mac OS X specific version, for a more Mac OS X experience with an
application distributed as a single file) + a few hacks on some
plugin.xmlfiles of some eclipse plugins (for hiding unwanted
contributions, such as
menus, actions, etc.).
That's why we're still using eclipse 3.2 packages.

I don't if your proposal could work in that case.
