The above referred to the following part of the draft:

"A valid exception to this rule would be existing packages where
 configuration is still done via the init file. In this case, the init
 file could be marked as %config to preserve a users configuration upon
 upgrade, hopefully so that the user can migrate said configuration to
 a new /etc/sysconfig/<service> config file."

Does it make more sense now?
