Interesting. It has never even occurred to me not to load entire WP code base into my project, especially since you can have multiple version control repositories represented in a project. 

I agree, I can't even image how constricting it would be not to have intellisense for core WP function when coding. Even worse would be not having the "jump to function" functionality, which I use constantly, to see exactly what a core WP function does (or what any other function does, for that matter.)
