If you're talking about including KDE in the LSB, yes - this lack of

If I understand correctly, since most Linux distros ship with KDE libs, an exception here would be extremely helpful for all.

What kind of exception?  There is no way to guarantee that libkde*.so
on one distribution will have the same ABI on one distribution versus
another.  Only after all distributions have a consistent C++ ABI can
we standardize on anything that uses C++...

I know we're talking about standardizatoin, on the technical side. Anyway, one thing is IMHO very bad for Linux, it's the KDE/GNOME fratricid wars. I was very happy they didn't happen anymore for months. Now I'm afraid we have here the germs for a new one, or please explain me.
