FTR - I'm not on the d-i team, and havn't been. No worries :)

I agree here. I think I quoted this in a followup after I figured out my
initial mail was contentless:


| It is requested that the tech-ctte make a decision as to the init system
| Debian shall use as the default, and make a judgement call on where the
| efforts to resolve this situation shall go (patching *around* the lack
| of systemd, or patching software to use systemd)
| I believe this is within the ctte's jurisdiction, given 6.1 section 2.

The TC is of course fully within it's rights to tweak under which
sections it rules.
