Agreed, but this almost certainly won't be done in time for LSB 4.0,
since we don't have that support in the mainline kernel or in glibc
today.  The question is (assuming their is application interest in the
xattr interfaces) whether we should try to standardize the xattr
interfaces without that feature?
