Alex, did you mean to send this only to me?  The Upstart mailing list 
doesn't add a "reply-to" field, so one has to be extra careful about 
where the reply is going.

How does the boot splash application know which services listen for 
runlevel-X events?  And what about event cascades?  Say, service Y 
listens for runlevel-X events, and service Z listens for service Y 
events.  Is the system "up" if service Y starts?  Shouldn't it wait 
until service Z has also been started?
