Perhaps we could take a slightly different approach.  What if we changed our 
standard install procedures to include placing /home on it's own partition, 
adding a strong recommendation to the state1 and 2 documentation that new 
users should begin with stage3 installs, and add a section to the doc for 
rebuilding an installation without losing everything?  This would give new 
users who start with stage3 installs with a path forward if they choose to 
experiment with stage1 or 2 installs after the become familiar with gentoo.

Just a thought.
