Efforts might be best spent on the modular xorg ebuilds, as I'm sure  
the gentoo xorg maintainers will want to ditch the monolithic ebuilds  
at some point down the road...although there might be too much voodoo  
in getting etc. installed properly for the gentoo xorg  
maintainers to stomach, so perhaps xorg-darwin is a possibility...

Not sure what gave you that idea...its the only profile for OS X I  
find useful :p I know a few others are using it as well. Its  
basically the proving ground for the portage base-system packages.  
Its also whats used for Darwin development, as building Darwin system  
packages requires a heavily modified OS X environment. I don't plan  
on deprecating it at all, if you feel strongly otherwise, maybe you  
should split the profiles up (again) and let the collision-protect  
profiles that install packages to / (non-prefixed) live in profiles/ 
default-macos and leave profiles/default-darwin for, well, darwin.
