The problem the original poster wanted to solve is having a warning when
trying to unmerge something in "system". The best way here is to file a
Portage enhancement request and not pollute the profile system set
marking. The purpose of the packages file is to describe what needs to
be installed for a minimal system to work so it doesn't make sense to
pollute it with implementation details.
