Yes, IC has a variable limit.

The relevant projection in L2 involves sweeping out the group means and then modeling the individual level residuals. Because this is an orthogonal projector it has certain desirable properties that make FE work the way its advertised. Switching to group medians would be the L1 analog but what are its properties? I'm not sure.
