Yes, that's correct. And yes, not all is bad in SysV. In particular,
having a directory where you can find scripts to stop (and restart)
subsystems is very nice. I think the multiple levels (rc?.d) is a bit
of overkill. Either the system is up (meaning everything is turned
on), or it's down, and the sysadmin who brought it down can start the
subsystems s/he needs. Having a single init.d to look in for those
things helps in that process.
