Forget runlevels for a second, .. the BIG advantage of SRV4 startup are

That's a nice theory ;)
All options are in one, known, place, easily
modified if needed. No need to paw through a lengthy rc.local (or other)
looking for track marks from the previous 'hacker' or adding lines shown
(or more often than not) at the end of an install script.
You mean all options are scattered through different parts of /etc
and /etc/init(.d) is symlink hell? ;)
Agreed. It's a shame, however, that we can't have the best part, init
scripts - that would greatly simplify a lot of package/port/source
I much prefer the damontools/runit way of doing things wich is superior
to init scripts in every way.
