LSB is talking about /etc/lsbversion files. So there could be differnet kind 
of versions ending up in /etc/. Say you install the LSB profile (yes i know 
it's not for this list but should go on alfs-discuss, but it's needed to get 
the total picture on this list) you'll have /etc/lsbversion or something that 
contains the LSB version that was used. To distinguish between that one and 
possible other ones lfsversion is better for clarity.
