Would be a nice goal, wouldn't it? But no, it don't has to be
identical. Distributors should just decide what they are: Distributors
of Linux with added software-packages (open source and commercial, I
wouldn't make any difference here) or OS vendors.

Sorry for asking back: What technical or logical reasons do distributors
have to insist on defining at will what is part of the base system and
what not? As I've said more than once, the issue actually is not where
the software should go to, the issue is if LSB should define a base
system or not.
