For some reason, I expected the list of distributions to
include the various past versions of LSB (and possibly the
upcoming draft LSB 4).
You might do some usability testing
and see if real users also expect the data to show up in the
distro table rather than called out in a separate text line.
I suspect some users might look only at the table.

BTW another thing that was slightly harder than it should have
been was to see which of our app's files were referencing which
file.  I seem to recall that needed about three clicks more
than I expected, which made it a little hard to discover.
