Thanks for agreeing to us.

To my knowledge LSB is only setting up a basic installation
for a system. Therefore bloating the system unnecessary should
be avoided. It's not about forbidding distributions to add the
scanner packages on their media for server installation, and not
about preventing users to install such packages on their servers,
it's only about to leave packages in the basic setup away, where
a common use doesn't make sense.
