Hey you're one of handful the people working on it, what do you think? :)

The LSB folks do budge, we've file bugs in the past and been granted 
exceptions, for example the i18n stuff that wasn't yet accepted upstream and 
clearly shouldn't have gone in.

In order to proceed I think we need,

LSB 2.0 test results for both sarge and etch (on all arches if possible)
LSB 3.0 test results for both sarge and etch (on all arches if possible)
The LSB 3.0 tests to release (get your feedback to them now!)
File any cert bugs and get answers on what we're required to fix
A set of needed fixes for 2.0 and 3.0 suitable for
  stable-proposed-updates and available at an alternative apt source
A proposal for the stable release managers

What else?
