There's even a rational, some would say logic, explanation why we use a S 
link rather than a K link.

Very short; we generally use Kxxx links to kill something, like daemons. 
Unmounting file system doesn't fit under that category so we use a Sxxx 
script. Also, Kxxx are processed before Sxxx scripts, which gives you more 
control when you unmount file systems and such. That way you can be assured 
that first everything is killed before unmounted.
