And in doing this you now require that configured kernel sources or
/proc/config.gz are present on the system unless you explicitly use the
structure to handle that condition.

I don't mind the idea of making them fatal, but please don't break
systems where there is neither kernel sources nor any .config available
for Portage to read.
