Whatever comes with any of them.

I don't see any need for the contents of /usr/bin to be idential between
LSB systems. I see a strong need for a common intersection across all 
distributions, and that intersection (or perhaps some subset of it) should 
be the LSB.

Is your goal really to ensure "ls -lR /usr" is identical on all LSB systems?
If so, why?
