only rc-scripts and systemd are supported.

you can install runit or supervised packages yourself,

but no other packages provide recipes for those init systems.

s6 package .spec exists, but not published as .rpm, so you need to build 
it yourself if you're lucky.

historically there was upstart,  support in rc-scripts and some 
packages, but it's removed/unsupported by now.

there was also attempt with initng:

you can install pld without booting to systemd, i.e using rc-scripts as init

but you will still have files from systemd installed:

- udev

- systemd-units
