You sure? You can simply write an rc.d script that iterates through
/home/*/rc.d/* and invokes each enabled script in there as the user, using su
This will cleanly shutdown stuff for them.
Whether they *should* be running their own instances is an entirely different

maintenance, while maintaining several instances complicates it.
