I don't really like the idea of this without a companion patch that provides 
some way to get a list of relevant env vars and their possible settings to 
the user without having to look at the ebuild. The list of possiblities 
could live in use.desc or a similar file, but at minimum the list of vars 
needs to be provided.

Another patch is also required that will allow disabling of the QA check on 
certain vars, preferably defined in a file in the tree similar to 
info_vars. This would be used for vars such as USERLAND which are profile 

In other words, don't kill the QA check without addressing the issue that 
the QA check is warning about. ;)
