Isn't it /both/?  IOW, just because portage implements it, doesn't mean 
it's usable in-tree, if it's not part of an approved EAPI.  Similarly, 
approval before released support again doesn't mean it's allowed in-tree.  
Only with both is it then allowed.

Leastwise, that was my read of the council decision back then.

But zero-day, yes, provided it's both approved and in-portage at the same 
level (~arch or stable).

Again, yes.
