I believe it should be a release goal for etch+1 to switch sysv-rc to
use a dependency based sequencing, yes.

It is already happening, so I am confident we will get even more
scripts to include those headers after Etch.  The nice thing about the
change is that it only add a comment to the script, so the change is
very low-risk.  Lintian already give a warning for init.d scripts
without these headers, and this help a lot of maintainers to notice
the problem.
