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."

You have to remember that USE flags are like a dependency filter that allows one to pick and choose which of to possible features one would like their packages to be compiled with. I think your point is well made USE flags should be acknowledged by the packages but packages should not change anything. If it is a feature that the package can not do with, then its a hard dependancy.
