I'm not sure for how much of the IUSE="+foo" cases this applies but I
can explain one of them:
In xfce-base/xfce4-session-4.6.1-r1 there is +fortune in IUSE
because otherwise previous users of 4.6.1 would be missing the feature
enabled by it.
If you worry that +foo is becoming a trend _without_ strong reason you
could try enforcing documentation for in metadata.xml (through new tags)
