It's possible, but since you're asking the question, we don't need to
standardize it.  We should avoid looking around for random stuff to do.

If an application developer or distribution comes up with a request
with supporting rationale for us to put an API (either new or old)
into the LSB, then it's more reasonable to look into it.
