I completely agree. Having glanced through the specification there is
one point that doesn't seems to be desirable, it is the script naming
scheme which seems ugly to me:
http://refspecs.freestandards.org/LSB_3.1.0/LSB-Core-generic/LSB-Core-generic/scrptnames.html
Although it could be a SHOULD item that upstream is contacted to
register to the lanana.

The other points seems right to me. Maybe you could put up a
proposal in the wiki and bring it to the packaging commitee on the
fedora-packaging list? There are already some items covered in 
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/ScriptletSnippets?action=show&redirect=ScriptletSnippets#head-b638e19c644263af59762a3154a60554a8303bb3
