Comment(by alx_me):

 Why not? It's a regular practic using symlink in UNIX, no? It's should be
 legal cause regular file standing for this symlink has normal control
 summs and size. If asked about use case: we have cetralized r/o distfiles
 on our server. And local distfiles r/w then it needed.

 And one more: emerge eats it ;-)
