Per internal discussion, rename the "cross-targeting" feature to "multi-targeting".


Cross-targeting is easily confused with cross-compilation which has a well-defined and quite different meaning.

Multi-targeting describes the feature very well - the ability for a project to compile for multiple target frameworks. Although it has an existing meaning in MSBuild (the ability for a project to target different frameworks), using it this way this is an expansion of scope, not a redefinition.

Currently, we have this in a few comments and in a folder of the SDK. As such, I am going to go ahead and close this issue. If we believe that there is still value in updating these, specially the folder, please re-activate.
