So if udev (maintained by systemd upstream as part of the systemd 
sources) would ever get a dependency on systemd being the init 
system,[1] that should be fine even when the decision of Debian
was to support multiple init systems?

[1] I am not assuming bad faith by systemd upstream. But if there ever
    is a technical advantage in making udev depending on systemd being
    pid 1, it might be a reasonable option for systemd upstream to add 
    such a hard dependency to udev.
