I suppose those stages will still be released. I'd like to have them available 
for the *very rare* occasions they are actually needed.
Anyway, there's no point discussing that here as we're not reaching the right 
audience.

Everyone is already advised to use stage3

That choice is not removed at all.
FWIW, it's not the main advantage of Gentoo, flexibility is IMHO.

It has already been said many times and it has already been translated into 
several languages, so for the umpteenth time, it is *faster* and less error 
prone to use a stage3, edit your CFLAGS/USE flags and recompile everything.
