I think it would be good for the project to already vote on the default
init question. Having a first result would take a lot of pressure from
the commitee and restore trust that you will be able to find a solution
for the project (which I think a non-negligible number of people is
losing right now).

I'm not sure of that (and would leave this to the systemd maintainers),
but it would probably take at least a few weeks of preparation in any
