You could always implement in Stage 2 before the Runit/s6 service execution a call to a legacy rc.local to load classic init scripts. We did it with runit-for-lfs and it works well.

Part of the project will be to provide some back-compat for SysV init. So,
eventually, when apt-get upgrade rolls around, calls to the original init.d
scripts will actually trigger 'sv restart $(service)', and services will
restart under runit instead of under SysV. But for now, yeah, I'll just
shut them all down.
