runlevel policy

To my mind, there is too much stuff in /etc/rcS.d/.  In particular, I
don't understand what network applications are doing there.  If I boot
to single user mode, I don't want networking, I certainly don't want
NFS, etc.  So what's all that cruft doing in there?  Can anyone explain
why Debian's runlevel policy seems to have strayed so far from
traditional System V?  Why is xdm/gdm/kdm etc. in runlevel three, for
