In some use cases, this would be an annoying limitation.  So we need a
fire escape for those.

For each such buffer?  If so, that's again an annoyance.

I don't really understand the rationale behind this design.  How
frequently (in time units) do you switch from one project to another?
Unless you do that several times a minute, I cannot see why would we
want this automation.

Me, I change project maybe once or twice a day, sometimes once a
week.  With such a low frequency, I don't need the automation too
much, but I do need the freedom to do project-related stuff from any
buffer I happen to be in.  Maybe I'm the odd one out.
