A general introspection flag may not be, but this isn't a general
introspection flag, this is specific to gobject and the suggestions try
to clarify that. People who want gobject-introspection (which concerns
gobject, and is therefore appropriate for a "g" prefix) will not want to
have to manually differentiate between arbitrary-library-introspection
and gobject-introspection by fiddling around with a package.use file to
individually turn it on and off. It should be an easy, global USE flag
to enable once in make.conf and forget about.

Why have to change it in the future (and probably split it into two
flags then), when the choice hasn't been made yet? Or, to put your own
question to you, why are you vehemently for "introspection" when others
have shown concern with the choice? As far as I can see, the only
difference is requiring a slightly longer use_enable line.
In the end, it's not a big issue and whichever is chosen it'll work out.
I'm just trying to figure out why the compromise solutions aren't good
enough to satisfy everyone?
