an LSB "conforming" script would have to use /bin/sh

yes, it's well known that some distros have "moved on".  LSB
is at this point lagging somewhat behind, although it continues
to try for a "common denominator" that is moderately old
(roughly speaking, RHEL5 is the baseline right now since
RHEL6 isn't released, it sort of ping pongs with SLE releases).
That's not exactly the way features are determined, but close
enough form a working description.  Current versions of
"community" distros can be pretty different, e.g. I'm not
sure whether the initscript scheme still makes sense in
the face of both Fedora and Ubuntu having moved to new
init implementations.
