Why boot scripts in /etc

Redhat has their init scripts in /etc.  Or as far as i can tell they're in
/etc
and what would be the point of having the init scripts in your path anyways,
i see no advantage to that, as long as telinit knows where to get to them
at.  That's the only thing that should be in the path (imho)
