... assuming they meet the LSB criteria. In addition the the arch-specific 
concern you mention (which could be dealt with in arch supplements),

Have you checked the other distros?
Are these interfaces stable?
Are these interfaces best practice?
Do they behave the same on the various distros?
Is upstream willing to support them as standard interfaces?
