Please make sure people can hand edit /etc/inittab!!
Not the stuff AIX makes you do with chitab/mkitab commands. Accidently editing /etc/inittab with vi on some AIX boxes forces you to reboot (at least thats what my admins say the solution is) because the OS and the inittab get out of sync. Yuck.
Who uses inittab anymore and why? Every sysvinit-based Linux system I've used uses more advanced mechanisms than inittab to handle services (Gentoo's OpenRC system I find to be particularly nice). inittab is to be left alone and good riddance, I say.
