I'd rather not mention this (very strict) standard without reading it. 
It requires both other mentioned standards and also UTF-8, PAM and RPM. 
Also it sometimes stiffles the progress (aka new versions of libraries 
don't pass the testsuite). This is not likely what most want in the main 
LFS book. A separate book or branch is probably OK.
