No. You can be LSB compliant in exit status, dependencies, etc. without
using the LSB wrappers (in fact, it's greatly preferred to *NOT* use
the LSB wrappers.)

My questions about this approach are:

- where are the benchmarks? What's the actual gain?
- how would this be useful for the case where facilities that are provided
  are determined at runtime (say, NetworkManager providing $network instead
  of /etc/init.d/network, or $remote_fs being provided by either rc.sysinit
  or /etc/init.d/netfs, depending on configuration). Similarly, you may
  want a meta-dependency for 'authorization available', which would be
  at different times depending on whether or not you're using local
  passwords, KRB5, etc.
- does this work with dbus system activation?
