I don't think so.

Main difference is "environment" which is clean before launch the
service by the "service" command.

Using "service" environment is closer to the one used during server boot
process (really different from "interactive" session)

One typical issue is environment variable need to start "apache" defined
in root interactive session and not during boot process.
(Such variable must be add to /etc/sysconfig/apache)

So please : don't use directly /etc/init.d/foo script

Remi.
