Bug#727708: I'd like to voice my opinion

I'd like to request that upstart be chosen over systemd mainly because there's already a large availability of deb packages that support init mainly due to ubuntu.  Ubuntu acts as a gateway distro to the debian universe, and is a basis upon which numerous other distros are based as well.

As such, a lot of packages are developed for ubuntu instead of debian.  Making upstart the default init package allows for compatibility with the majority of these ubuntu specific packages.

Furthermore, I know upstart is capable of maintaining backward compatibility with systemvinit scripts as debian implements them currently.
