I'm not expert in this, but here's my two cents:

I'm afraid that since LSB apps are not allowed to rely
on any libs not in the LSB, they must include all the
libs they're going to need, right in the .lsb package.
Now, I can imagine an app that contains multiple
executables having its own shared libraries, an
I'd expect the LSB build tools to allow that.
But having a dependency on a system library that's not
in LSB, as you propose, is right out.
