I think that netstart is probably sufficiently stable at this point
that we don't have to worry about future updates being severely wacky.
If you don't think this is so, maybe we out to hash this out before
releasing 1.3.   If I recall, rc.conf wasn't in 1.2, so we don't care
about backwards compatibility in the 1.3 release.   (If you run
-current, you pays your money and you takes your chances.)
