No, it does not require sysvinit support for all packages indefinitely.
The current TC decision is *for jessie*.
Since the current proposal sets the default only for jessie,
it basically implies that a new TC decision and/or GR about
init systems will have to be discussed and voted on for jessie+1.
AFAIR so far noone has suggested dropping sysvinit support in jessie
if jessie supports multiple init systems, but for jessie+1 that can be
discussed when the init system discussion for jessie+1 will take place.
