The LSB folks at our weekly bug triage considered the bug 
filed by Matt Miller on the topic [1].  The FHS and LANANA 
space is mature without much activity, and so my comment 2 in 
that bug was designed to permit a 'fast-track' assignment of a 
/opt/fedora/ namespace, for use as the project sees fit

We need to do some infrastructure work with LANANA to 
communicate this well within the FHS documentation, but as 
Jeff's summary indicates, absent some major objection being 
surfaced, will, I think, be the way the LSB proceeds in its 
next update (usually done at six month intervals)
