/etc/init is not for SysV compatibility, it is for Upstart. Considering
that systemd is not Upstart-compatible, and AFAIK Fedora only really
used Upstart in SysV-compatibility mode rather than with Upstart native
scripts, I would expect to see /etc/init go away sometime in the near
/etc/init.d, on the other hand, should stay around at least when you
have the LSB layer installed.
