Actually, this is a mistake.  The provides line in individual scripts
should never use the the virtual facility names.  The virtual
facilities are handled outside the init.d scripts.  For insserv, it is
specified in /etc/insserv.conf.

Yes, this is fine.  Though the current check-initd-order script do not
handle scripts providing more than one facility..

Happy hacking,
