I agree with Branden here, all of his concerns are valid.  Certainly the LSB
does not force every Linux machine to be a workstation.  This would force the
numerous Debian web/news/mail server installations around the world to install
openGL which is just silly.

Now, if we have a 'Workstation' setup, it should install some form of GL,
probably xlibmesa.
