With Gentoo, that's really only for the preliminary installation.  Once you
get the system up and running, you're free to modify it in whatever way
pleases you.

For binary distributions, especially those that deal in the enterprise
sector, the one-size-fits-all approach is damn near mandatory because most
admins run with the distro-provided kernel and typically are not custom
compiling them.

But we're not a binary distro.  We're a source-based distro, although it's
possible to run Gentoo in a binary fashion.  As such, we're not necessarily
beholden to the "one-size-fits-all" approach.
