nfs-utils bootscript broken?

Why mount and umount in client bootscript?  That's exactly what netfs is 
for (boot time mounts and umount on RL change without networking).  No 
problems with it I'd hope.  It should break on shutdown if /etc/fstab is 
correctly using _nodev options as explained on network fielsystems page. 
  I suggest the following minor change for start and stop in 

              echo "Starting NFS client services..."
              loadproc /usr/sbin/rpc.statd
              loadproc /usr/sbin/rpc.lockd

              echo "Stoping NFS client services..."
              killproc /usr/sbin/rpc.lockd
              killproc /usr/sbin/rpc.statd
