Ideologically there's none, but practically build system may need patching in
eclass to fit Gentoo needs. And it's better to do it officially in eclass
src_prepare phase than hack around elsewhere.
Either provide all buildsystem related phases or none - I'm already tired of
playing "guess which phase from which eclass takes precedence when multiple
inheritance is used" game.
