I think they can be useful for any application as long as they're
maintained. I can see the value of the QA policy that they must be
masked, but I don't see value in forcing them out of the tree. I
think the key is that we want the tree to work - if it works then it
belongs. The ability to seamlessly support live builds is one of
Gentoo's distinctive features - since we're already a bit of a niche
we should embrace this.
