From my (layman user) point of view I am still using /usr/portage/local
for it because I prefer to have all "portage trees" in the same place.
Maybe another option could be to have a /usr/portage/overlays directory
used for "unofficial" overlays, then, layman configuration stuff (like
its make.conf and so) could be present under /etc/layman, while overlays
(sunrise, gnome...) could be installed under /usr/portage/overlays
