I do not mind, but:
- there are only 6 options in all of mk/defaults/mk.conf that are
  prefixed this way;
- it can easily be applied to pkgsrc only, in mk.conf:
.ifdef BSD_PKG_MK
- unprivileged builds will use a different mk.conf anyway.

So I do not think it is really necessary.

Actually, it works this way too.
