Have a look at the Serel Fastboot project.
This does a dependency analysis of booting the first time round,
then after that sets off the init scripts in a fashion like you describe.

I played with this last year, and it seemed fine on my laptop.

uses AFS.
Not sure what the exact problem was, but I didn't pursue it.
