Could there be profiles of LSB?

I see a number of purposes where X is not needed, notably the
server market. On the other hand I do agree that most Linux boxes
would need X, for ISVs to prepare their software in a portable way.

So we could have 

1. LSB graphical (with X)
2. LSB shell (without x)

I note that from a customer view it would not make sense to want to
install a package requiring X, if X was not already installed.
So in practice it would not matter if X was not installed
on such a system.
