EAPI-2 to EAPI-0 could imply lot of changes (not talking about what is
going to happen when we release new and more feature rich EAPIs), and
changes usually come with bugs. The ebuild is committed directly to stable
implies bugs in stable, which for me is a no-go.

Which sometimes is going to be impossible, require lot of work, and we
fall into the risk of bad backported patches when non trivial backport
patches are needed (which turns into buggy patches in the stable branch)

Most of the times this is not going to be possible. Seems to me that EAPI 
changes are not trivial to PMs and need some kind of decent testing
