That support does launch s6, granted, but what I'm getting at is this:

Use OpenRC to launch each individual service with a wrapped s6 service script using a sort of stacked runlevel schema. Each service launches against s6, but rather than be controlled strictly by s6, it's controlled through OpenRC with the exception of the supervisor which can restart a failed service using s6 while still maintaining control through OpenRC.

In a way you combine sysvinit, OpenRC, and s6 in a harmonious union. It's one way of doing things, but it does give insight into mixing different services to run a system.

OpenRC, since 0.16, *does* in fact support s6 integration:
