This assumption is true of many of the daemons, I grant you, but not all of them. Specifically nfsd for example, which spawns off multiple instances of itself, but has not parent process. There may be other services that are like this as well. I can probably think of other instances where you might want to do something similar as well if you give me some time. :)

I don't see why it's not sufficient for monit to monitor the parent process only. Take for instance apache - it fires off a lot of child processes (fork-model) but apache only write the parent process to the apache pid file, since this is the important controlling process.
