Comments and white space cannot be edited through this model at present. Each project root element is associated with exactly one project collection. This allows the owner of that project collection to control its lifetime and not be surprised by edits that come from another project collection.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
