in theory they agreed to use RPM, in practice this is meaningless
Within LSB, RPM was supposed to be the distribution format for packages. Nobody ever said that a LSB-compliant distribution would need to actually use RPM for its own packages; it would only need to be able to install LSB-compliant third-party packages that came in RPM format, which is an entirely different ball-game.
