Thanks for your comments!

I don't understand why you say that "Linux Standard Base" has nothing
to do with non-free.
Consider, for example:
Binary-only software is one of the characteristics of non-free software.
Yes, it also has applicability to binary-only distribution of free
software, but that's not the same as "nothing to do with non-free".
Do you agree with me? If not, could you expand on your views?
