[wix-devs] WIP 6108: .NET Core SCD-style BA

Wouldn't a SCD BA still need to fall back onto the prereq BA if they introduced a dependency on another 3rd party .Net lib for their BA?

I looked into how to load the .Net Core runtime for a framework dependent deployment (hostfxr_initialize_for_runtime_config). That API will make sure that the app can run on the runtime that gets loaded, but can't be used for self contained deployment. So our host will have to call a completely different API for SCD vs FDD.

Does it make sense to have a separate BA for SCD and FDD? What would the names be? The only way that makes sense to me is if the SCD one never brings up the prereq BA.
