Any meaning attached to a specific runlevels between 2-5 is distro
specific. 0, 1, and 6 have reasonably consistent meanings across distros
(perhaps something somewhere specifies this?).

Under Debian for example all run-levels 2-5 are deemed to be the same
with any differences being up to the admin.

I don't think we can easily resolve this disparity in the initscripts
shipped with Xen so I think the choices boil down to either all
runlevels or none, and I think all is the least surprising / most
