Concerns regarding GF Plugin for Eclipse Helios

First, many thanks to various folks for the pointers to the new update site.

In bringing the new pre-release GF plugin down, I see that the underlying "Server Runtime Environment" is renamed from "GlassFish v3 Java EE 6" to "GlassFish Server Open Source Edition 3 (Java EE 6)". Note that I'm not referring to the actual server profile, that by default has the same name.

The profile can be renamed... the underlying reference to the server runtime cannot (to my current knowledge/experience) be renamed in Eclipse (3.5 or 3.6)

I would like to raise the concern that renaming this underlying entity means that I cannot
a) easily migrate a GlassFish project developed within Eclipse 3.5 to Eclipse 3.6.
b) completing the migration (reconfiguring all related projects to the new server runtime name), I cannot easily return to the Eclipse 3.5 project.
c) I certainly cannot share the project between the two versions of Eclipse.

Point taken. It is sad that Eclipse is using server UI labels in config files, really...

But I do not get the b/ where you cannot complete the migration to the new definition of the runtime?
