It's nice if dash boots faster. But changing
/bin/sh to dash is not a
tolerable solution. The init scripts then should simply say
"#!/bin/dash" and be done instead of imposing a vastly inferior shell
/bin/sh is not the same as /bin/bash (and not necessarily a SUSv3
compliant shell although there seems to be a convergence towards
that), if you need features of your superior shell you can simply
request it by putting !#/bin/$superior_shell at the very top of
it. That even gives you the added value of portability across
many other (though not all) OSs.
It is not about imposing a shell on you but on the contrary
giving you choice as dash, bash, and ksh93 all support the SUSv3.
