IIRC we get this already, when the EAPI isn't supported by the version
of portage installed -- upgrading really old systems won't allow an
emerge of python-2.7 due to a too-new EAPI, and python-2.7 is needed
to upgrade to the newer portage.
I don't see how the EAPI check itself failing and thereby excluding an
ebuild is much different than the specified EAPI excluding it..?
Either way, the end user is going to have issues if they don't keep
their portage up to date.
