Well the LSB has a deprecation policy and things can go away. However
as the LSB is in transition mode and LSB 5.0 is likely going to be the
last release of the specification as we know it there is not really a
way to remove things going forward.

In order to remove something from the LSB there would have to be a
compelling reason. Spewing insults at other peoples work based on
personal opinion is generally not a compelling reason to make changes.

lsb-release is a command for which the LSB working group provides a
reference implementation. Any distribution is free to implement their
own version of the command as long as the output confirms to the
results produced by the reference implementation. If someone wants to
implement lsb-release in Ruby there is nothing preventing this.

Later,
Robert
