That's the end goal. That's what s6-linux-init- does.
What you call the "rc" service is named "runleveld" in s6-linux-init,
and it is just a service spawning a "s6-rc -pu change" process with
the argument you give to the telinit command. Its output naturally
goes to the catch-all logger.

Manual invocations of s6-rc are of course possible, in which case
the output will go to the user's terminal. runleveld is only
involved at boot time (well, not really, but the "runlevel" script,
that invokes the service manager, is spawned with the same
environment) and shutdown time, and on telinit invocation.
