The leaf list is a very good idea !

But actually, my concern is that I don't think it's something that is part of
the installation. This should be part of a portage frontend, that could be
called during installation (in chroot), or at first boot.

installation should (imho) install the base system, then reboot (or have a
complete chroot), to let the tasks to be done by configuration tools & portage
tools
