You already can not, as was demonstrated not all Linux distributions
use the same uid/gid for these users.

Question is: why should you rely on having these users provided by
the LSB? They don't serve any purpose (at least not within LSB).

If people need them in their environment there is nothing to stop them
from (re)creating them with a consistent uid/gid that is consistent
throughout their environment.
