Is that really so easy to do, though?

X is normally managed by init, wheras the init scripts are
managed by /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit.

I think you are suggesting that the current /etc/inittab \ /etc/rc.d
scheme be re-invented. Perhaps it has merit.

It isn't a small change though, at least from a maintenance / portability
perspective...
