It is necessary to provide that statement.

The new windowing system is not part of projects. It means that
switching of projects per se doesn't affect the window system layout.

The new window system doesn't remember open editors in a project. It
means, when a project is closed, all document windows (that contain
editors/viewers) of objects in the project are closed too, and no
document windows are opened at the same time from the newly open project.

But, switching of projects can affect the window system layout
secondarily. For example, if a project is switched when a form
document window is focused, then closing the project closes the form
document which then closes the form window set. The result is modified

Nevertheless, the important point is that none window system settings
are stored in a project.
