I may not understand correctly the framework, but not stopping on error
for a script in rc.d/ not ending in ".sh" is a feature. To "fault", a
script must end in ".sh".

Since---I was responsible for a thread about the rc.d/ handling last
week---every kind of scripts, now, end in rc.d/, that is not only system
provided (and tested) scripts are here but third parties and perhaps
suboptimal, aborting on any error would be a bad idea, since user level
daemons are not critical and may be more easily fixed in not single user
mode (remote connexion for example).
