This issue was discussed already... 
If you and think that EAPI is meta-information then it should not be
inside file name and then it's possible to parse ebuild and get EAPI
from some defined-format line. Performance penalties can be mitigated by
some new caching (you know better than me that it's good idea to
re-implement caching in any case).
If it's not meta-information and can be put inside file name, then put
it differently, not inside extension. It "breaks current package
managers" is not an argument since it's possible to change format now
and we'll have this feature later.
We are already discussing this feature more than year. Many people
voiced concerns about .eapi extension so why don't you try fix same
issue differently? Yes it's harder and probably longer but I don't
believe it's impossible.
