What about people who like to install both gnome and kde on their
systems? (Perhaps different users on the computer use different DEs)
It probably won't be a problem in the short term (people can just
select one profile and add the missing USE-flags to make.conf). But it
/might/ get unwieldy in the future if more USE-flags and USE_EXPAND-ed
variables make their way into the DE-specific profiles.

Since multiple inheritance is not worth the work, I would suggest each
project team maintain some minimal documentation in their doc space
about the USE-flags and USE_EXPAND-ed variables enabled in each
profile.
