Wouldn't it be more obvious/simple to have an extra profile subdirectory
containing package.use.mask and package.use.force?
Maybe in combination with 'eselect profile' to be able to select multiple
profiles , selecting both what /etc/make.profile pointed to as symlink
as well as some /usr/portage/profile/unstable/$arch - to avoid the need
for having an extra unstable/ subdir within each (selectable) profile dir.
Actually, I do have an extra unstable/ subdir for each selectable profile
here, besides an extra buildbot/ subdir too...
As a side effect, this wouldn't affect EAPI in any way.
