Many Eclipse committers are happy to rely on the last released version, and this is totally fine for the majority of the Eclipse.org projects. Platform UI is the only one that mostly require to work with a recent SDK of the same stream.
IMHO, that would make sense. Especially since there is an "Eclipse for RCP/RAP developers" which contains a super-content of the "Eclipse for Committers" one (and no, RAP isn't affecting badly UI nor performance as some thought in the past).
The "Eclipse for Committers" is indeed a bad name for Platform, because it seems to be the standard package for committers, whereas it's actually not the one that works for Platform.
See above, I don't think it's a matter of content, but a matter of versions and stream. So I'm afraid that solution wouldn't work.
EPP packages are built on any SimRel change, so what you're asking for here is supposed to be available at https://hudson.eclipse.org/packaging/job/oxygen.epp-tycho-build/ (when there is a good build available).
Maybe the Platform doc can be updated to recommend using such integration build.
