Why not have a configuration variable like "rc_files" or something
like that in rc.conf? Adding additional rc-dirs that way would be even
more trivial and less dirty...

A simple implementation of that idea would be this:

in /etc/defaults/rc.conf:

in /etc/rc:
  files=`eval rcorder -s nostart $rc_files`
  files=`eval rcorder -s nostart /etc/rc.d/* $local_rc_files`
(instead of files=`rcorder ...`)

DISCLAIMER: I haven't tried this, it's for demonstration only :-)
