I know it is not a system daemon. If policy.d only is tied only to sysV scripts then I apologize for causing confusion: I do *not* mean to say that jack should be handled as a sysV system daemon.
My point is that even as a user-invoked daemon I still believe that it should be possible to suppress it due to being a daemon.
I believe (but have now investigated) that user dbus (in addition to system dbus) is can be suppressed too, for the same reason.
It has been some time since I looked at this last: When using diskless systems like LTSP this issue becomes relevant.
