Here's a little secret:

The only code differences between portage 2.1 and 2.2 appear to be one
file managing features, so 2.1 just has preserved-rebuild and some of
the set support disabled. But if you trust 2.1 enough to use it you also
shouldn't have a problem with 2.2.

There's still a few silly bugs with preserved-rebuild (corner cases like
downgrades and stupid build systems), but I've not had any problematic
behaviour in quite a long time ...
