Controlling services via xinetd has some overhead associated with it -
every new incoming connection will have to start the server and parse
the configuration file.  If it's a service (which chkconfig also
controls), then the daemon stays running.

It's a tradeoff between flexibility, reliability, and performance.  The
nice thing is you get to choose.
