How early to start BRLTTY?

It simply says to start BRLTTY as soon as possible. I do not use fedora 
for my work, however, inittab is not much different in it's 
functionality in other Linux distributions. BRLTTY is just another 
process started anywhere and as long as it doesn't depend on other 
processes to be run before it, you can start it.

I found the following link also of possible interest to the reader:
