That's not the case. The distros can be as different as they like with LSB they're simply required to make sure certain development and user libraries are included in the distro when it gets shipped. The same thing applies to the recommended file structure of Linux O/S so that the majority of programs will still work even if the file structure differs in some areas and the way it performs differs to an extent. If certain core areas are included in the same way it increases compliance.
