Sure, but distributions wishing to pass the at-spi conformance test need to 
know which libraries to ship (or to patch away).

And the LSB reference implementation needs to be complete, i.e. every 
dependency that is not in the LSB needs to be copied in the at-spi module.
And every piece of code that becomes part of the reference implementation 
needs to have a maintainer that is cooperative with the LSB and can react in 
case of security holes, etc.
