The strings to translate do not come only from initscripts, but also
from /etc/init.d/* files from all packages in the distribution.  Many
package developers might not realize that $"..." means translation, or
what makes translator's lives difficult.

Centralizing the messages inside functions in /etc/init.d/functions, and
then trying to convince package maintainers to use these functions,
would probably make most sense overall.  Failing that, just document the
exact preferred strings in a Fedora wiki and try to convince package
maintainers to use them.  In any case it's a lot of work that will never
be truly complete.
