No, it is not. invoke-rc.d *HAS* to be coordinated, and implemented by every
initscript system.   The maintainers of these packages are well aware of
that fact.

The better fix IS to add an extra line to both incarnations of invoke-rc.d
(sysv-rc's and file-rc's) to look under /usr/local/sbin first.

No.  Either it has to go on a package of its own, or it has to have the
functionality folded into file-rc and sysv-rc.
