Because redefining restart is not possible in practice. It is as simple as
that. It goes against what the LSB will propose, some developers want
restart as it is, and I don't want to confuse long time administrators that
expect the braindead current definition of restart to be there.

You try to define restart-if-running/maybe-restart/whatever-you-name-it to
as mandatory instead of optional and see if that goes through policy. If it
does (and I'd like it to, I should add), we'll talk again about the issue. I
just happen to think my approach has far better chances to ever get
