That's a good reason to put this in the description of the USE-flag. But it is a bad reason trying to force the user and hide this fact from him...

It is not a use flag you can arbitrarily flip.

A lot of use flags cannot be arbitrarily flipped. For instance when you switch off pam and then execute depclean you even end up with an unbootable system (I did this mistake some years ago...).
If a user just arbitrarily flips USE-flags every few days just because he can (and is not reading their description and has no idea what he is doing), he is wrong with gentoo anyway.
