All ideas, true or false, follow those stages, but one hopes that the
false ones are eventually derided and toppled.

Accepting it as a fait accompli.  It makes life much harder for no
obvious gain, but short of creating one's own distro we seem to be stuck
with it.  To answer your question, a combination of proposition 1 and
the first part of proposition 3.

For those of us with (in my case) over 30 years in the industry, reading
init scripts is trivial and at least we can see what is going on and fix
problems quickly.  Some vague, poorly documented, data file which is
interpreted by a black box is the sort of joy one expects from the
murkier regions of Redmond not the sunnier climes of Carolina.
