Can I ask: why the init.d scripts should be linked to a
specifid init deamon?

IMHO we could have a very short init, which it will do
1- call an "init.d" program/deamon
    (and our discussion should be only on this part)
2- do what an init should do: give the eternal rest to zombies
    and being the father of the orphans.
