I do, on my EfikaMX smartbook, the only caveats being that some parts
are non-free, though I have sources, so I need to re-write the ebuilds
and build the tarballs for it still.  I've been installing gnome 3.2
on there, so it's going a bit slow at the moment.  One caveat of using
a "modern" desktop-y system is that consolekit seems to need
CONFIG_AUDITSYSCALL which doesn't exist for ARM devices yet.
