If you run

  dpkg-query -W -f='${Conffiles}\n' |grep /etc/init.d|grep obsolete

you will get a list of files in /etc/init.d/ which used to belong to a
package, but is no longer part of that package.  Conffiles stick
around after they are removed from a package, unless the package in
question remove the conffile in its postinst script when the file is
removed from the package.

Should be safe, if you got the debian scripts around.

Happy hacking,
