Is there a positive reason why Motif is not part of LSB? 

Its absence is going to mean that some of our major apps 
won't become LSB-compliant, because they're constructed 
as many shared libraries, each with some user interface 
of its own. Statically linking Motif into each of those
would add huge bloat, and maybe mess up controls that 
are supposed to be global.
