If (as you believe will not happen) not all projects become top-level, 
there is no problem.
If all go top-level, they will be happy of it, since they are not 
obliged to do it, so itìs still not a problem.

Bottom line: tell everyone what should be done, ie top-level or in the 
same xml project.

If something is needed, it will naturally remain.
If it's not it will naturally go away.

  -> No problem :-)
