Are you referring to API baselines for API tooling?
If so, you are correct - an API baseline is just another target. There is
no official API for creating API baselines currently. However, in PDE, we
leverage the target implementation to populate API baselines. I.e. we
define a target, resolve the contents, and then construct an API baseline
with API components (bundles) based on the resolved bundles in a target.
So the answer to this question is "no" since the API being enhanced is
around target definitions, rather than API baseline creation. However,
aligning these two technologies is a longer term goal.
