That's a good idea; really, the system is "started" enough when the user 
is presented with a login prompt, either via X or getty.  At the very 
least, that's when the boot splash should be exited.

If the boot splash doesn't show a progress bar, but rather a list of 
services which are starting, then there's no real issue.  The real 
problem is determining the answer to the question: "how much longer 
until I can log in?"
