It is clear. But I have create a custom cascaded profile which derived
from profiles/default-linux/x86/2007.0/desktop/ (for example
profiles/default-linux/x86/2007.0/desktop/unstable) and have it as
parent and I wanted to change some aspects in parent profile including
masked (say in profiles/default-linux/x86 level) flags.

So if Paludis uses profiles/default-linux/x86/2007.0/use.mask but
ignores profiles/default-linux/x86/2007.0/desktop/unstable/use.unmask I
should make a lot of work and make full copy of
profiles/default-linux/x86/... It seems very uneasily and profile
cascading mechanism is not fully useful.
