Nope.  I do not believe it is necessary.  But I belive it is a good
idea.  It would also make sure init.d/winbind is inserted into
approximately the same place with dependency based boot sequencing as
it had in the old boot sequencing.  It used to start after syslog was
operational, and should probably continue to do so.

It would also make it easier for packages like watchdog (see #540390)
to start a script before most daemons are started, by asking to be
executed before $syslog.

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
