This is inherited from Debian.  Debian has always had runlevels 0,1,6,
and all the others.  By default, runlevels 2,3,4 and 5 are treated the
same, and left to the local admin to configure differently if that's how
they want them.  The seperate set up of different runlevels is a
redhat'ism in the linux world (I know many other *nixes do it, too, but
not all that many linuxes bother any more).
