That's essentially my whole point. Generators are _not_ able to catch all
corner cases but should be able to lower the initial ebuild creation
cost. That could be such things like figure out the license, try to
fill the source url, ....
In principal: Try to automate what is possible and leave the rest to
the maintainer.

But in that state they are a tool for the Gentoo developer not for the
user.
