I am not a maintainer, but it looks like this is just to
have a common name for any ups-monitor package. As you have
found halt uses it to power off the ups without knowledge
about which specififc ups daemon is installed.

It should be ok, whenever we have one init.d linking to
itself we have two scripts providing the same facility that
is incorrect for insserv. If insserv will check such
situation I do not see how it might be harmful.

Another idea came to my mind, why can't we use alternatives
for init.d scripts?
