I'm not aware of anything.  

and readlink-the-command comes from GNU coreutils, which is
GPLv3 licensed - something which seems to scare certain
people to death (presumably because they can't TIVO-ize their
products) so I believe it would be pretty hard to include as 
mandatory in LSB... at least until alternate sources exist
(I've heard in the Mac world there is such a thing, but since
I don't play around there I don't really know)
