Sort-of. The LSB description is ambiguous, as evidenced by the many
questions posted when we decided to migrate our existing pre-LSB
scripts to the LSB variant. And I'm far from sure that other
distributions answered those questions the same way.

It would be lots of work to shoehorn sysV init design in something
radically different. SysV has no notion of hotplugging which must be a
core design consideration of any semi-decent init system replacement.

Because other distros have a "let's keep compat with RHEL init since
ISVs target RHEL", but if Fedora/RHEL moves to something else keeping
compat will mean supporting this something else. Don't mistake this
for any particular attachment so sysV init scripts (quite the
contrary)
