I don't know much about it either, just stumbled upon it by reading the
man page of "/etc/os-release". Looking at the database (see ), I
realized that the "big" distributions like Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu and
OpenSUSE are in the database, so my line of argumentation was something
like "Why not?" ;).
Basically it makes it look more professional as it could be used as a
reference for entries within CVE and things like that.
But I have to admit that this was just something I wanted to mention. I
by no means insist on that.
