Well, since parallel startup support will probably be an option and will
requires the initscripts (the one shipped with fedora in the
hypothetical case) to be modified so they will worked correctly in
serial an parallel mode, why not assume the dependencies for third-party
scripts based on the order in which they would have executed serially?

Maybe when "chkconfig --add" is invoked for a script that doesn't
contain dependencies information, chkconfig could determine (assume) the
"equivalent dependencies" based on all the scripts that should had been
executed before the newly added script.  

Am I making any sense?
