Per package eclasses are pretty much eblits with some PM support thrown in.

No, code reuse will stay the same. What I like about the idea is moving
more of the code closer to the ebuild files, tightening it's scope. No
more wondering (as an ebuild author) if and how I could use
php5_2-sapi.eclass - it just wouldn't be there.
I'll answer more points tomorrow, but thanks for your ideas!
