It's cool! I did not know about this feature.
Is there a user friendly way to read this information from
metadata.xml? It seems that euse reads only use.desc and
use.local.desc.

use.local.desc is automatically generated from metadata.xml files, so
it's the same thing

And this will soon be properly documented:

The fundamental theorem of algebra is open source. Like any other
mathematical theorem it can be applied free of charge and everybody
has access to its proof and can convince himself how it works. Why
should software be any different?

I must admit that I did not look there (I tend to use internet search),
but it is also not in my current manpage (=sys-apps/portage-2.1.7.17)


use.local.desc

All local USE flags must be listed here along with the package and a
description.

Format:
- comments begin with # (no inline comments)
- package:use flag - description


Not a word of metadata.xml or auto-generation.

I'm not sure what Mike meant, but after seeing his message I went
and updated the man page:
