I have the exact same doubts myself :-)

I really think the "Unanswered questions" from the wiki page should be
addressed first :
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FCNewInit/Initscripts

As an example, I still don't know what the correct/best syntax is for a
service to not be run by default in any runlevels :

- No "Default-Stop" or "Default-Start"?
- "Default-Stop: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6"?
- "Default-Start:" and "Default-Stop: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6"?
- Something else?
