Why are those ebuilds not live? If upstream doesn't do real releases and can't even be bothered to tag the commit that marks a release, then why are you (or someone else) doing all this work? The snapshot scripts could be replaced by a live ebuild and upstream can handle bugs as they come since they can't be bothered to version their software.I would expect because live ebuilds can't be keyworded, so snapshot is the correct way to do it.
I think the rule of not keywording live ebuilds originally applied only to those who fetch git/svn/cvs head. If a live ebuild fetches a particular revision, then the disadvantage is still that it can't be mirrored (hence a snapshot is preferable from user POV), but other than that it can be tested fine.
