Like Thomas said, it's an LSB specification.

And, you're not supposed to use the scripts from 2.2 on a 2.3.5b
machine. That's why 2.3.5b has improved scripts and the symlinks that
are created follow LSB.

I'm not providing upgrade information in the 2.3 series, but when 2.4 is
released I'll add a section "How to upgrade from 2.2 to 2.4". Mainly it
means re-arranging the boot scripts. There's no need to reinstall
software, unless you want to install a newer version of it.
