What about setting the default X11BASE to /usr/local/ depending on
OSVERSION=>700000. That way only -CURRENT users will have to rebuild
everything (which they are used to). Newly installed system with the
yet-to-come 7.0-RELEASE will simply use '/usr/local' as global X11BASE
and we could add a compatibility symlink to the mtree files for 7.0 too.

3 years down the road only few "desktop" users will still be running 5.x
or 6.x

What am I missing?

Which is worse: ignorance or apathy?
Don't know. Don't care.
