I prefer "_live" for various reasons:
- Almost everybody calls them "live ebuilds" not "scm ebuilds"
- There may be live ebuilds not related to source code management
(app-portage/eclass-manpages might be an example), and ebuilds
fetching their sources from a fixed tag in an SCM system, therefore
not being live.
- No confusion with the Scheme language.
