With some work, sure.

I did not say "require", I said "encourage". I agree that it's
unreasonable to expect developers to maintain init scripts that they
themselves do not use in addition to init configuration for whatever
init system we end up with; and I do agree that it should be fair game
for people to drop the init script from their package.

However, there are some advantages to be had in continue to ship init
scripts (while I can see no downsides, apart from the fact that they
need to be written), and in that light it can make sense for us to
encourage people to continue shipping init scripts.

This end should point toward the ground if you want to go to space.

If it starts pointing toward space you are having a bad problem and you
will not go to space today.
