Yes, such as Debian Policy 10.4, usability for /bin/sh, and my
strong belief that ash is even worse and ought to be replaced
with mksh (well, lksh -o posix) globally.

That being said, several Debian package maintainers' scripts
are so bad one has to use lksh -o sh -o posix as /bin/sh there...

But globally means globally, so other OSes should see the light
and switch to the glory that is mksh as well.

Also, consistency (between sh and the login shell, i.e. mksh,
and the scripting shell, i.e. mksh).
