That's certainly an option but it's not the only one; see the recent
"Functional" threads for example.

For LSB, there is an *explicit promise* that if a vendor does what is
specified, the package will be possible to install and will run correctly.
We do, of course, have the option to repudiate LSB and explicitly say we
don't care for future releases.

And it's not only commercial software; private projects that make no sense
to publish (such as a company's web site) are equally affected such
changes. Simply spoken, if we care only about package in Fedora, we are
building an appliance; if we want to build an operating system, we do need
to cater for software not included directly in the repo.
