Yes. I guess it is quite common for (commerical) projects to have an
empty root package that depends on some packages that are all copied
into one repository. See for example Magritte-All for Magritte,
Pier-All for Pier and OB-Umbrella for OmniBrowser.

For what it promises it works well. It does not work well for code
distribution, because you everybody wants a different package

That's also the reason why Seaside doesn't use them. For example
Seaside just depends on *a* web-server, not a specific one.
