It's been a long-time since anything but telinit's protocol has been utilized,
and everyone symlinks or hardlinks.
Canonical's Scott Remnant provides an event-driven init replacement in Upstart
which still provides legacy compatibility, including the legacy init/telinit commands.
Upstart has been adopted in Fedora for several versions now, and is a good
example where the best solution in practice takes hold, regardless of origin, and
that's how it should be.
I.e., Red Hat had no less than three (3) major init replacements in development for
years, but Upstart A) solved the problem well, B) provided full backward compatibility
(some existing efforts did, others didn't) and C) was working well in Ubuntu.

Ah ok...wonder if they just plain got rid of the old "init" then.
