This is super vague. What does being "outside of an init system's
implementation" mean? What does "degraded operation" mean?
If you really want to have that discussion now, rather than wait for
actual, concrete problems to discuss, I'd suggest that you build a few
hypothetical scenarios, and discuss them. And then build a resolution
that represents the aggregated opinions on those few hypothetical
But I also don't really understand why there's a particular urgency
for the TC to rule on that. Are there packages with tight coupling
already in the archive?
