The text from rc(8):

  The rc.local script contains commands which are pertinent only to a
  specific site.  Typically, the /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ mechanism is used
  instead of rc.local these days but if you want to use rc.local, it is
  still supported.

I had earlier read that as "don't use this".  I would prefer we change
it to your text, which is clearer.
