I suggest to support files with "-${EAPI}" suffix.
Examples:
  profiles/package.mask-5
  profiles/use.desc-5
  profiles/base/package.mask-5
  profiles/base/package.use-5
  profiles/base/package.use.force-5
  profiles/base/package.use.mask-5
  profiles/base/use.force-5
  profiles/base/use.mask-5
  profiles/desc/python_abis.desc-5
