Ok, let's simulate the installation process...
1) I preapare everything according to the Install Guide
2) I set up my make.conf the way I want it, with ~x86
3) I run bootstrap.sh; it ignores my "unstable" choice and builds a
"stable" base system
4) I run emerge system and then complete the installation
5) later, I run emerge --sync and emerge -u --deep system; it now
follows my "unstable" choice and brings in all those packages
The net result is just that "sacrifice of time" you mentioned...

Sorry, I don't get your point... (and I did't take it as rude)
