I didn't do a lot of reading, but it sounds to me like this solves one
of OpenRC's two disadvantages: The fact that it can't respawn.

For all I know it might amelliorate the other problem: insane init
script complexity, by putting more of the details in the s6 run script.

Me, I'd just go with s6 out of the box, but I guess OpenRC is more
corporationally correct or something like that, and as such, I'm glad
it can use s6 to do the supervision (and sysvinit to do the PID1, you
can't make this up, folks).
