If the EAPI is to be specified, it must be assigned to precisely once.
The assignment must occur within the first 20 lines of the ebuild, must
not be preceded by any lines other than blank lines or those that start
with optional whitespace followed by a # character, and the assignment
statement must match the following regular expression:

If EAPI is not specified in this way, the EAPI environment variable may
be either empty or set to the value "0".

That would make it an utter pain in the ass to specify and verify...
