As Robin mentioned, overlays already do this without any of the
downsides associated with splitting the tree into 12000+ git repos.
Also, overlays have more flexibility because they're not limited to a
single package (although they can contain just a single one if
necessary), so I'd imagine developing and sharing 20+ ebuilds at once
will be much easier to manage in an existing overlay, than in 20+ git
submodules cloned from the main tree.

I wouldn't expect Joe User/Proxy-Maintainer to have much to do with the
git tree, much as I don't think many users/proxy-maintainers use CVS
over rsync.  So if the git capability were in conjunction with overlays,
I don't know how popular it'd be, and if it's not in conjunction, it
seems like discarding a working mechanism for something untested...
