Strange /etc/rc.d/netif behaviour

I'm not sure if this is really a bug but it doesn't look all fine to me. 
When I do a /etc/rc.d/netif restart it does restart the network 
interfaces but doesn't replace the default route that it just erased 
even if it is specified in rc.conf correctly. I found that I should also 
restart routed but it looks strange to me. I know that the /etc/netstart 
script did it all but it's written in it that it's obsolete so I don't 
want to use it.

So, is this normal and if so what is the best way to restart both a the 
same time.
