Yes, that's the whole idea. The names 'lapack' and 'blas' are just symlinks to 
whatever library implements them, like the reference libraries, or ATLAS, or 
perhaps at a later stage MKL.

In the stable tree sci-libs/atlas is the only atlas package available. 
lapack-atlas is currently still masked, but the idea is to perform the 
transition soon and phase out sci-libs/atlas.
