Subject: USE_EXPAND flags and IUSE

Do we have a policy for QA regarding to whether USE_EXPAND flags should 
also show up in IUSE?

Take, for example[1], a scenario like this:

IUSE=""
RDEPEND="elibc_foo? ( foolibc )"

The metadata cache will generate the IUSE flag as empty as well, 
breaking stuff like my little GPNL tool that needs to read it to see 
what use flags are implemented.

Obviously, portage is fine without it in there, but I wanted to know 
what our policy is.  Plus, I'd like to fix them so that the IUSE is 
correct as well.

Steve
