OK, good.

After a bit of wordsmithing and rearrangement I now have this:

  == clarification text for all versions except GR ==

     This decision is limited to selecting a default initsystem for
     jessie.  We expect that Debian will continue to support multiple
     init systems for the foreseeable future; we continue to welcome
     contributions of support for all init systems.

The additions, compared to the previous version, are
 * add "for jessie" to the first sentence
 * add the new "expect continue to support" wording as discussed
   above (and make it the start of a new sentence as that seems
   to read better).

As I say in the heading comment, this text would appear in both the
T (tight coupling) and L (loose coupling) versions.

Adrian, does that address your point ?  I think that phrasing makes it
clear that the remaining text (whether T or L) applies past jessie,
