Your suggestion would require that hundreds of packages are manually masked in base profile
and unmasked in this new subprofile.
E.g. it is planned that dev-python/setuptools will have "python_abis_2.5-jython" USE flag.
This flag should be masked on architectures, which don't support Java/Jython. use.mask and
package.use.mask files in base profile don't support such a USE flag, so dev-python/setuptools
and all its (at least indirect) reverse dependencies would have to be masked in base profile.
If a future EAPI allows a new character in package names, then my suggestion would allow to
handle such packages.
