You'd quickly run into dependency problems this way, though. There's a
reason why we have service managers such as s6-rc and anopa.

s6 is powerful on is own, so by all means, switch to it. But as soon as
you feel the need for oneshots or inter-service dependencies, keep in
mind that you'll probably be better of using s6-rc.
