IEEE, TOG and ISO is now in the process of specifying the "common
UNIX/POSIX" - I think the goal for Linux should be to target that 

The "common UNIX/POSIX" (which is not necessarly the final name) will be 
one set of documents hopefully issued by all three organizations, as
identical documents. The set will be specifiying all POSIX/UNIX
functionality in an upwards compatible way with current ISO/IEEE/TOG
