I've missed this reasoning so far, and can only agree.

Maybe someone can push this into developers reference (or policy?)

And there is also #601455, which IMO should just be used as a blocking bug for 
all the other against individual packages, which IMO don't implement it 
correctly. "invoke-rc.d $foo stop" should always work, even if disabled 
in /etc/default/foo - and if its not, its a bug in the package. 

General bugs or ranting usually doesnt really help much - except as reminder, 
ie in form of a blocking bug. :-)
