Indeed, this sounds like nothing but "Pointy Hair Linux" conformance, which I think we can do without. Trying to meet these requirements is akin to ISO C adding Annex K and other junk to make Microsoft happy. They knew there was no hope of Microsoft actually adopting the C standard, so why even bother trying to make them happy? Similarly, "Pointy Hair Linux" is not adopting musl anytime soon, so worrying about conforming to their silly requirements seems like a waste of time and energy... Rich
