If the LSB does define additional libraries, it might be worthwhile to
bundle them in optional subparts of the LSB.  For example, if GNOME 2
were defined in the LSB, packages requiring GNOME 2 might depend on
lsb-gnome2.  Similarly, KDE 3 might be fulfilled by lsb-kde3 on an
LSB-compliant system.

My concern is that the LSB not get overloaded with superfluous
facilities.  So far, it has been a reasonable subset (although the
inclusion of the X libraries in the core standard may be a little on
the way to bloat), but adding every free toolkit out there to it will
lead to massive bloat {Debian's lsb package already pulls in a large
number of packages as it is, without pulling in all of GNOME and KDE
too} unless some sort of modularization is pursued.
