And that is the beauty of NetBSD being a living project as you were 
describing in your last post.

If there was full consensus that this was "best current practices" 
then this thread wouldn't exist :P.

I'm certainly not going to lose sleep if it is decided that this 
setup will never change. It doesn't affect me all that much in that I 
only have a few packages that I have starting at boot. I just don't 
think that it is at the level of refinement that I have come to 
expect of NetBSD.

Just my thoughts,
