I think that requiring all layers to be on the same CRS for processing makes
we can live with that. Perhaps this fact should be stated in the
even in the menu where the user selects reprojection on the fly (for
"only for display of vector layers") and/or in all fTools menus (and/or
fTools could actually check that
CRS is consistent across layers and warn the user (rather than preventing
him/her of actually performing the operation).

Yes it is intentional. In fact, all fTools functions (where overlay is
relevant) behave this way. When I first created these tools, this
seemed like the best option. I am now starting to think that using 'on
the fly projection' coordinates might be a good feature to have. I
will have to evaluate this further, but for the time being, they do
both have to be in the same (or equivalent) CRSs.
