symmetric to /etc/init then ~/.config/init would be scripts for upstart, 
so i'd say ~/.config/init.d is fine

xdg itself is simple, but loading user configuration to it, is 
difficult, so i'd say leave hardcoded .config, this can be changed later 
if somebody really interested :)

i suggest to process only extensions *.sh and *.init, whitelisting 
always works better than blacklisting.
