Well, that is simpler in one dimension (much less complicated init
script). But it doesn't actually address one issue that the OP was
talking about - the fact that we change users in different ways / places.

Indeed. Hopefully we can convert to these various next-gen init
replacements at some point, but we want to be fairly backward-compatible
and conservative here.
Incidentally, can I just point out how pleased I am that there is such a
rich variety of init replacements that every distro seems to be able to
pick a different one...
