Links in /etc/rc*.d should be treated as configuration files?

Hi all,
I've noticed that some packages (xprint and postgres to name a few),
install new links in /etc/rc*.d on upgrade even if those links were
removed by the administrator via update-rc.d.

Usually those package restart the service during upgrade even if it
wasn't running.

Should we consider rc.d links as configuration files and respect Policy
11.7.3? If this is the case maybe a patch to update-rc.d (something like
--upgrade) and a lintian check could be the simpler solution.
