But what, if there was also a stop link in the current runlevel, which
means the process isn't running? Or the other case what if in the current
runlevel isn't a start link? What happens if you switch from runlevel S
to 6? I think there should not happen as much, because in the S runlevel
are only few processes were started.

The current file-rc implementation (the author says it bases on sysv-rc)
calls all stop-script in runlevel 6.

Great. This is the behavior I expect of file-rc.

But at me:
$ PREVLEVEL=3 /etc/init.d/rc -d 2  
rc: 3 -> 2
Reading configuration file /etc/runlevel.conf.
set centerline=here; /etc/init.d/xdm stop
~$ PREVLEVEL=2 /etc/init.d/rc -d 6
rc: 2 -> 6
Reading configuration file /etc/runlevel.conf.
set centerline=here; /etc/init.d/xdm stop; /etc/init.d/cron stop;
/etc/init.d/aumix stop; ...
~$ grep xdm /etc/runlevel.conf 
01      0,1,2,6 -               /etc/init.d/xdm
99      -       3,4,5           /etc/init.d/xdm
