As pointed out on -devel, the doc seems indeed to exist: it can be found
in the README.Debian of the insserv package. I agree that this is no
excuse to not have it documented in /etc/init.d/README, so I've prepared
a patch that adds a section to that file pointing to
/usr/share/doc/insserv/README.Debian. You can find such a patch

I'm also raising the severity of this bug to important, as I believe it
is very important (pun) to have this properly documented in Squeeze, no
matter what the default for CONCURRENCY in /etc/default/rcS will end up
to be.

Can you please consider applying this patch?

Many thanks in advance,
