Oh, I don't recall having ever seen it :-)

For some fixed hardware, yes, but not for hot pluggable hardware like
bluetooth, smartcard etc. where the daemons are started anyway in the
eventuality that the hardware gets added after the boot.

This is the best that can be done for now, but does lead to useless
daemons running, taking up boot time and system memory. I'm really
looking forward for the day we can start services only when the
hardware they need gets plugged in.
