Linux Standard Base – only for slow machines?

Starting my day with my normal dose of slash, I found this article calling for the end of the Linux Standard Base. Basically, I’d have to agree with the article it linked to, posted on Ulrich Drepper’s LJ. From what I’ve seen, the LSB is based around stupid standards and testing software that blatantly sucks, and it seems that anyone that passes it is using software that they’ve had to modify to run on a) slower uniprocessor machines b) a distribution that isn’t binary compatible to the shipped verision.
