It's not valid, but I don't think the service scripts should break if someone 
accidentally does it.

I think your suggestion of symlinking the common name so the logrotate script 
rotates the active one but the service script still uses a package-specific 
pid file is great.  We could probably take that one step farther and write 
some common service handler scripts to re-link the syslogd.pid file to the 
proper daemon so accidents with starting multiple daemons and then shutting 
down one doesn't remove the symlink completely.

Thanks for the great idea; I'll see if I can work with the other two packagers 
to get this going.
