After many Debian stable versions trying to align Debian with LSB (or is it the reverse?), Stretch got released with a restrained support of the LSB; Buster will remove more LSB compatibility packages.

How did this happen, and why? Will it make the LSB obsolete, or is it the final nail in Debian’s coffin, condemning it to eternal uselessness?
