I'm not aware about any of such rules (even unwritten). I mean, this is change
proposed against master/development branch, so it's likely, that it might
cause some havoc. We can still fix/revert it, right?

It depends on how you look at it. If you take the Acks into the account, then
it might be considered as a decisison made by a few "signed" developers under
that commit.

Anyway, it's much simpler, I just touched that part of the tree with recent
changes (mainly related to service_running stuff), so I've simply thought,
that USE_PROCD=1 should be implicit, because:

 * it would make the code in rc.common cleaner
 * everything in the master tree has USE_PROCD=1 set explicitly
 * it's unlikely, that anyone is using OpenWrt services/packages without procd
