I don't know what are the approval criteria, but the following test must 
be passed by any package containing a daemon (service) before it's released:

A package containing a daemon (service) must successfully execute 
"service daemon-init-script start" after the package has been installed. 
This command must launch a working instance of the daemon, with at least 
the basic functions enabled, the definition of "basic" depending on the 
daemon. No configuration changes should be required for that. Examples: 
Apache, Sendmail, Postfix, Squid.
