I'm assuming that user-destdir mode will remain - that seems obvious but
I thought I'd make sure I wasn't confused.

I agree it is getting closer to being time to do this.  It seems there
are two issues: the boostrapping one you mention, and then the question
of how many packages would break.  I had thought there were some, but a
quick grep seems to show that there are zero packages with
PKG_DESTDIR_SUPPORT=none.  (There are 474 in wip, but that's not really
relevant.)  Do you believe that there are no longer any
non-destdir-supporting packages in pkgsrc proper?
