What about handling chromium-bin the same way amd64 handles grub-static?  
They create a standard binpkg of the normal grub ebuild (using 
standardized USE flags, of course), using that as the source tarball for 
the grub-static ebuild, which then simply ebuild-scripts the unpack and 
install of the binpkg tarball.

In theory, the ebuild could even grab and merge the appropriate binpkg 
based on arch, allowing the ebuild to be keyworded for more archs than the 
usual binary-only ebuild tends to be, altho I'm not sure that'd work in 
practice as I'm unsure of the effects on the metadata cache and whether 
that would be allowed or not.
