@Brian, that feature is included in the Extensibility Tools 2015 extension

@OzBobWa, Web Essentials 2015 has this exact feature that adds Grunt and Bower to any web project. Just right-click the project node in Solution Explorer and go to Add... -> Grunt and Bower.
You should be able to use the Package Manager Console to execute yo commands. We'll also add a Open PowerShell Here feature to the Task Runner Explorer to make it easy to get to Powershell at the right path.
JSX support is coming, but we haven't started on it yet. We've done the initial architecture and know how to add the support, now we just need some time to implement it. I can't make any guarantees that it will make it in to VS2015 RTM, but I hope it will.
You can open folder based websites by doing File -> Open Website. It's a directory based project system that doesn't require any project files.
Visual Studio 2013 Update 4 does not include the Task Runner Explorer nor the Package Intellisense extension. They are separate downloads you manually have to install.
We haven't implemented that yet, but it's on the backlog to add support for binding to all the VS configuration.
The extension now supports Visual Studio 2012
Yes, but I can't get to the drag 'n drop events from Solution Explorer. I don't think they have added hooks for that. If you know a trick to make it work, please share
This is already supported and has been since VS2005. It's not that well-known though. There are 2 web project systems in VS - one is a project file (.csproj) system and the other is a folder based system.
In Visual Studio, go to File -> New Website... to create a folder based web project. It will automatically do the correct nesting if you have Web Essentials installed (it's a free download).
1) This doesn't effect anything in your app at all. Either runtime or design time. All it does is to change the visual representation in solution explorer. It does write to your .csproj file to make it work, but it doesn't have any functional impact.
2) In the .csproj file
3) The rules are not saved in the project. You can find them in Tools -> Options -> File Nesting
I'm not sure. I don't think I will since this is not a web specific feature. However, I said the same thing with the Image Optimizer extension and it's now part of Web Essentials.
Make sure the rules are enabled by going to Tools -> Options -> File Nesting and setting them all to true.
That is my plan but so far I get errors when I try. I haven't given up though, but if you know some tricks, please see if you can make it work. I've already made it so the project can be opened in VS2012 (you need the VS2012 SDK too).
