Sorry, but this is nonsense (or rather FUD). Indeed we had 3 ebuilds
(0.01%) in the Portage tree where parsing resulted in an EAPI
different from the one in metadata.

In one of them, removal of the old assignment statement had simply
been forgotten [1]. For the other two, the EAPI had been assigned by
an eclass [2], which we consider illegal anyway.
