(I am currently writing a chapter about the NetBSD startup and rc.d
1) Why not have rcvars for all rc.d scripts?
Several scripts can't be disabled (i.e. they don't have any rcvar to

What were the arguments against this?
2) downinterfaces and bootconf.sh not complete rc.d scripts

bootconf.sh doesn't use rc.subr and downinterfaces only uses rc.subr when
ran with the "stop" argument.
Is that okay?
