LANANA is a good thought and I think we should consider to reinitiate the project. 'lsb' as base dependency for all LSB dependent packages is fine, but I think we need more well defined names in a finer granularity. Who is currently maintaining LANANA? I'll be happy to help out and continue (or better 'start') working on a proposal. Besides this it needs to be stated what tools can be expected to be present at which state. Inspecially for pre/post scripts this is an important issue to know.
