Look at it from the new installer's point of view. He reads that stage 1 
allows him to customise his Gentoo system (whether the one he's installing 
or the one he's installing with isn't made clear), and that stage 3 will 
make him put up with optimisations chosen by the distribution team. Now, I 
ask you, how is he to know that (for present purposes) it matters not one 
jot in the long run which stage he chooses, because recompilation of the 
entire system is recommended after installation? He's quite likely to finish 
the installation and then just go on to use it, oblivious of other 
possibilities.

I suggest you read the long thread on emwrap that I pointed you to last 
time. Then tell me it's all rubbish and that your method is best.
