I like this  sentence, and if we get significant support from those who
favor choice 1, I would accept that amendment.
Meanwhile, I think I can go as far as

>Policy notes that early boot services like those started from
>/etc/rcS.d may be tied closely to the init system in use and thus may
>need to be handled differently for each init system

well within the spirit of the current choice 1.

I'd definitely like to resolve this ambiguity.  All I'm trying to do is
accurately summarize policy/our thinking on this issue in that
sentence.  That sentence is not even intended to make any changes, but
calling out this point was important to Martin.
