Here's the thing: I doubt the lack of feedback is down to everyone
being happy with the proposal. I strongly suspect it's because people
look at it and go "huh?". You've provided exactly the kind of
information that no-one cares about (e.g. long lists of variable names,
which will probably just come from a var in profiles), and none of what
really matters.

I think you'll get a better response if you write this up in GLEP form
(i.e. motivation, examples etc) to describe to ebuild developers what's
in it for them, and as a diff against PMS so that package mangler
authors can work out exactly what you're saying.
