My opinion of the LSB's role seems to differ from yours.  In my
opinion the LSB exists to identify and standardize on best current
practice.  There is no industry precedence for using $HOME/.settings,
nor is there a move in that direction.  The LSB does not exist to
strong arm ISVs into doing things in accordance to the whims of any
one person.

If there is a strong technical reason that this change is absolutely
required for things like proper application co-existence, the LSB
should entertain the suggestion.
