No... then I would see more reason to not have things called  
"devtools".  I would expect that each of these "devtools" would have  
their own page, then own JIRA so they can be managed separately.

I think its fine to have a the side-nav box titled "Development  
Tools" but I expect to have each major tool to have its own  
independent area for managing content/issues related to it.

I guess the thing I don't really like right now... is that we refer  
to the "eclipse-plugin" as "devtools" interchangeably.  I believe  
that should change... and I think the way to make that change is to  
start renaming stuff that was previously "devtools" (which was solely  
for eclipse tooling support) to "eclipse-plugin".
