LFS moved from putting the init scripts in the book to making a package 
out of it and installing the lfs-bootscriptss package instead. If you 
are suggesting that the bootscripts be included in the BLFS book, then 
they should also be included in the LFS book since IMO the init scripts 
in LFS have more educational value than BLFS. (Most of the BLFS init 
scripts fall in "run_proc server_executable" for starting and "kill_proc 
server_executable" category which IMO is very uninteresting.)
