README says that in the /etc/rcS.d/ should go scripts which are
executed once during boot. In debian policy manual rcS.d is
mentioned only once in section 9.3.4, but from short description it is
not clear could the daemons be started from scripts in that directory.

My mistake. I should say boot process. Sorry for inconvenience.

That was with racoon patched to work under runit (or other supervisor
software like daemontools). When I reinstalled racoon from testing
it doesn't block booting process. But that gives mi a hint. If some
daemon process could not be started (for whatever reason) it should
not block the booting.
