Because then it won't conform to the "service" interface, which allows
starting, stopping and checking the status of daemon processes. (I'd say
"see man service", but there doesn't seem to be a manpage for it).

Init scripts also allow you to start and stop processes based on
runlevels, which can be very handy.
