The decision is on how to proceed:
a) do not do anything at all (i.e. either mention deps in
   pkg_postinst(), use plain USE or whatever devs like now),
b) introduce some kind of SDEPEND in a new EAPI [1],
c) re-use USE flags and allow declaring some of them as runtime-only
   (so they won't require package rebuilds and just adjust @world
   depgraph) [2 mostly, though not necessarily using USE_EXPAND].

I'd like the Council to put some point on the topic of changing eclass
APIs heavily with EAPI bumps [3].
