This is now the solution I am preferring most.
Basically, /etc/portage/profile would have a new location - /etc/portage. /etc/make.conf moves to /etc/portage/make.defaults (or make.conf as an alternate name.) You define your profile(s) in /etc/portage/parent.
This basically collapses everything together in /etc/portage and eliminates a lot of duplication and confusion.
