optional: "$@" placement in default for src_configure()

econf "$@"

optional: "$@" placement in default for src_compile()

emake "$@"

this one is what I'm really after for:

default for src_install() in EAPI=5 should accept "$@" in correct place 
to avoid usage of EXTRA_EMAKE within ebuilds/eclasses and to avoid 
duplicating the Portage code for DOCS.
NOTE: When this was last voted on for EAPI=3, we didn't have this DOCS 
handling, and this wasn't important yet.

emake DESTDIR="${D}" "$@" install

I'm not good with documentation so this sounds too much of a curve, 
sorry... Unfortunate if this boils down to it.
