My understanding is that all lsb compliant packages have a
"Requires lsb" in their package header (Or require another package, wich
requires "lsb"). By providing a "lsb" package or explicitly saying
"Provides lsb" in the header of a installed package
the package will install (without --nodeps ;-).
You can put what you want in a "lsb" package. By having one,you declare
that your system is ready to get lsb compliant packages installed.
Hope this helps
