The issue I see is that Bdale states
This leads me to want to let Debian's normal processes
of competition and selection work to the greatest extent possible,
enabling those who are interested to pursue and maintain alternative
init systems at whatever level of functionality is necessary to meet
and yet the ballot specifically excludes any option supporting that desire.
The simple ballot I think is needed is
1. A change in default init system for jessie is absolutely needed in
time for jessie
2. Allow the project to evolve its own solution at its own speed.
The TC should provide further guidelines for init system coexistence
in the meantime.
3. Further discussion
But I suppose its too late for that
