I was implying something that did not build/compile. All mentioned would be 
obvious exceptions, as they are clearly not binary only.

The requirement would be for binary only packages.

An ebuild using src_compile from a eclass is likely not a binary only package. 
An ebuild installing scripts, text. xml, patches, etc would not be considered 
a binary only package either.
