In Avid you can only have one project open. However you could have 100 sequences in that project. But just like FCP 7, I just don't see any app performing that well with all that stuff cached up. It's just not feasible. And what would one do in 7? Open a hundred tabs? Any project that starts drawing on that many past projects would be a monster in any edit suite.

I think really FCP X needs to bring it's own project and event manager into the fold so that it can search them even when they're not offline. Like EventManager X, but with much more functionality. Perhaps the event manager could even retain the thumbnails or a filmstrip screen shot of sorts, without actually caching any media. Or at most creating some sort of small sized representative video clip proxy. THAT would be pretty powerful. You could preview and/or search events and projects before bringing them online. Perhaps they're leaving that functionality for another server type companion app.
