Uh, this looks like a "pull" type of thing in which ever init.d
script starts its dependencies. I don't think this is a good idea.
No, it is not. The dependencies are cached.

Cached? As in queried beforehand? As in two-pass algorithm, once
iterating init.d with 'depends' as option, then with 'start' ?

Yeah, that sounds nice.
My sarcasm detector went off with this one, so I'll try to intervene. AFAIK the Gentoo /etc/rc does the following: 1. for all init.d scripts, read it, call depend(), determine its dependencies, store its start() function somewhere; 2. for all dependency-ordered determined, call the start() functions paralelizing when possible

And, yes, it's very nice.
