<sarcasm>So we should get rid of the FHS as well? Perhaps the POSIX
standard?.  Certainly Debian Policy must go!</sarcasm>

Okay, I've read further down in the replies and see some valid
points. But "it restricts what I can do" is not a useful objection, as
that's pretty much what *all* standards do: Limit choices so that the
user can rely on specific/consistent behaviour. As a practical matter,
I'd bet that very few people mess much with the default runlevels, and
I'd further bet that most who do end up with something very similar to
the LSB proposed system.
