Gentoo Daniel Robbins, original creator of the Gentoo project, offers a solution to fix the recent leadership crisis at Gentoo: "I have received permission from my employer to return and serve as President of the Gentoo Foundation, renew its charter, and then work in some capacity to help to get Gentoo going in the right direction from a legal, community and technical perspective."

...The removal of packages bringing in use flags (eg. installing mysql would add a mysql use flag), this is probably a good idea but nobody has bothered adding default use flags per package!

It would be disastrous though. Imagine the conflicting use flags if every single package added its own use flags to the system. Installing mysql should never add a mysql use flag. However adding a mysql use flag ought to result in mysql being installed. Your suggestion would completely screw up sane systems.
