It's not permitted _for LSB applications_.  None of the packages shipped
in Debian are LSB applications and we're completely free to Provide:
$cron if we so desire, and I think not doing that in the init script
would be a bad idea.  If implementations don't support that, they should
just be fixed, IMO.
