I think it replaces /sbin/init, so it's not harmless..

Thinking about the merits of having diskless nodes being
able to upgrade, is an important plus.

I think the way to go is to have a Pre-Depends: (or 
is Depends: enough for not allowing packages to install
without something?) on a specific symbol, which is only
available inside the NFS system.
