use.desc and use.local.desc don't have EAPI versioning either; as such 
they're eapi=0 till versioning is introduced (and then wait till the 
support is deployed far enough to avoid breaking people).

Meaning, just the same as I said on this bug... this isn't viable, and 
frankly it's not really a deal breaker lacking it.  It can be worked 
around.

If folks want it, they're going to need to sort out all of the 
backward compatibility issues *prior* to trying to shove it into eapi.
