Forewords: 1. I don't now CentOS, and I don't know Webmin.
2. Be extremely careful NOT to modify the Message-ID in any way, and do
not ever regenerate the Message-ID, and in doubt, reject messages
without!  Else you may create the nastiest message loops beyond imagination.

That being said:

I don't think Upstart can replace (x)inetd just yet, all I've found is
about pondering and future plans and ideas, but nothing that would hint
to an actual implementation.

I really will not support Webmin.  If Webmin isn't up to the task of
configuring inetd-based services, possibly with tcp wrappers, then
Webmin or its (x)inetd-to-Upstart integration needs fixing.

Do check the logs however, chances are that inetd/xinetd have something
to complain about that cause Upstart to restart it all the time.

Daemontools by itself don't launch leafnode either, you'd need ucspi-tcp
as well; or one of the modern and maintainer alternatives like runsv +
