So one can e.g open mail and browser in standard way...

That's cool, but can I actually register my own program as a web browser? Android offered this ability in version 1.0.

Basically LSB is an eclectic set of random technologies and not a cohesive platform because it includes only "mature" things. That's not a way to attract application developers.

There's xdg-mime, but last I checked, xdg-open didn't use it as a fallback if the KDE, GNOME, or XFCE launchers weren't found (it just gives up and tries $BROWSER and firefox.

This data point probably just goes proves your point about LSB anyways :) .
