It probably should. Although in the early days the model for ebuilds
was that they were scripts that were "executed", nowadays there's so
much support required that it's better to think of ebuilds as being
data. If you did have a /usr/bin/eapi5, it would have to be implemented
as something that invoked the package manager, not as a direct
interpreter.
