I did not find the solution I use in the thread.

I just do a:
# chmod -x /etc/init.d/daemon

Another simple:
# chmod +x /etc/init.d/daemon
to activate the daemon again.

# sh /etc/init.d/daemon start
to start it by hand

I also like the complaint of init at boot and shutdown time
"sh: /etc/init.d/daemon: bad interpreter: Permission denied"
to remind me that the daemon is deactivated. OK the message is not so
clear and may confuse a user.

I do not know of any negative side effect.
