I couldn't reply you for all the question but I'am using a 188.8.131.52-vs184.108.40.206 hand patched (not gentoo) on a production server since 43 days and I haven't any problem with it. My old vservers are all working correctly without mmodifications since my host sshd is not listening on 127.0.0.1 interface and the new vserver with true 127.0.0.1 is working fine too.
If gentoo has not unmasked it that is because they don't have suffisant return of users about it.
