Also, see /usr/share/doc/sysv-rc/README.policy-rc.d.gz.

Executive summary: If you want to prohibit all invoke-rc.d-mediated
start actions, create /usr/sbin/policy-rc.d as an executable shell
script that exits with a status of 101. If you find a package whose
initscripts do not honor this, file a bug.

(I learned this on this list, but I cannot find the relevant message now
 and therefore I cannot give credit to whoever posted it originally.
