I think you missed my point entirely about not standing up proprietary

I'm still waiting for someone to give me a comparison between the
LSB/Berlin API concept and what autopackage currently does.   Is there
really a need for the LSB/Berlin API? Does it really do more than what
the autopackage roadmap encompasses?   Just from a motivations point
of view, it seems to me that autopackage is meant to solve exactly the
same problem as the LSB/Berlin API.  And if that is the case, and its
only implementation details that are different, then I think its
probably appropriate for the LSB/Berlin API supporters to do a
compare/constrast against the more mature autopackage concept so we
can get a better understanding of the detailed differences.  Sadly,
such a comparison would need to use very small words, if I am to be
part of the target audience.
