The USE FLAGS to disable MSN and AIM/ICQ protocols are not available in kopete ebuilds. Just add in ebuilds :
use msn || kopete_disable protocol msn
use aim_icq || kopete_disable protocol oscar
Steps to Reproduce:
USE="-msn -aim_icq" emerge -vp kopete
Sorry for my english
No, we are not making features that have no additional dependencies optional so that other users would moan that kopete is 'missing' icq/msn support as they've forgotten to add those flags (Bug 150974 and others).

It's the meaning of use flags: disable features that we don't use, no ? I don't understand why this two protocols are 'imposed' by gentoo :-/
Get back to us when IUSE defaults are allowed in gentoo-x86; until then, not worth the PITA.
Why don't you add a "nomsn" etc. for that ebuild, then?
use nomsn && kopete_disable protocol msn
The statemente about choices Gentoo is based on would be safe, and no additional pain would be caused to users.
Because no* flags are broken by design. Please, don't request such things, see comment #3.
