The question is for me, if SANE will become a mandatory package
or will it be an optional package only (btw. is there any such
concept in the LSB?).

The background I'm asking is not hard to understand. Running a few
servers, where no users are sitting in front of, I've no need to do
things like scanning or similiar. But the SANE package is a pretty
large one, and therefore it's bloating the disk usage only without
any further advantage.
