Where is the problem? You don't use this nonstandard option and
everything is ok. There is no rule that a software is not allowed
to have more options than specified in the LSB. So you don't need
to check, if software can do more, you only need to check that
software can do that, what the spec requires and don't do things,
which are explicit forbidden.
