Initng is already in Fedora Extras after a long review process.

No. Its a new init system written after the review process of initng 
started and we havent decided which init system to adopt or whether to 
write a new one.  Speed is not the factor that would lead Fedora to get 
a new init system. There are a number of other advantages that are more 
important.
