I am fixing the other Bug #521650 upstream, but I will not fix this bug until the packaging committee has clarified what exactly should be mandatory and what should be optional.

You are confusing the issue by pointing at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FCNewInit/Initscripts which describes things in conflict with the actual packaging guidelines at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/SysVInitScript

Furthermore LSB compliance is not a requirement in of itself.
