Wouldn't this still break pretty easily as soon as you change anything
in your local portage copy?

It wouldn't bother me since I use PORTAGE_OVERLAY for all that stuff,
but I understand that some people like to be able to put in temporary
changes in /usr/portage directly.

Also, you would have to deal with distfiles, which could of course not
be part of this tar.gz.
