fstab task

Hi all,

I'd like to pose a question based on the following statement:

“fstab” task is started on the “filesystem-mounted” event, it checks the list 
of mounted filesystems against /etc/fstab and if all are mounted, generates 
the “writable-filesystem” event.

Q)  In my fstab I have an entry for a cifs mount for my external maxtor NAS.  
If it is for some reason turned off and can't be mounted (or detected) then 
is it fair that the "writable-filesystem" event doesn't happen?

- should also apply to smbfs (even though it is deprecated) and nfs.
