Hm, I was misreading it as calling that for all services, which obviously
break.

But even so, implementing it this way means that you read and run
each script at least once, if not twice. The goal is to not look
at the script at all, if at all possible.

One suggestion is a chkconfig 'extension' that creates a TXX link,
which means to don't bother running the stop script.
