Should USE=git be global?

While cleaning up my .../etc/make.conf file, I noticed that there
appear to be a number of packages which use USE=git to enable optional
support for dev-vcs/git. Should USE=git become a global USE flag?

parakeet ~ # grep -Fe ":git " /usr/portage/profiles/use.local.desc
app-portage/layman:git - Support dev-vcs/git based overlays
dev-python/anyvc:git - Add support for Git
dev-util/kdevplatform:git - Enable Git version control support
dev-util/metro:git - Enable support for git snapshots
dev-util/monodevelop:git - Enable Git version control support
dev-util/qt-creator:git - enable git plugin
dev-vcs/cvs2svn:git - Support for dev-vcs/git
dev-vcs/fromcvs:git - Add support for conversion to dev-vcs/git repositories
dev-vcs/rabbitvcs:git - Enable plugin for dev-vcs/git
kde-base/dolphin-plugins:git - Enable support for the git VCS
sys-devel/gettext:git - When running `autopoint`, use git to store the internal
development files; this requires git at runtime, but will be faster/smaller
than raw archives
www-apps/redmine:git - Enable support for dev-vcs/git
xfce-extra/thunar-vcs-plugin:git - Enable dev-vcs/git support
parakeet ~ #

Where dev-util/metro and sys-devel/gettext appear to have another
meaning for their USE=git flag.
