First of all, YES it does.. and a lot.. and the majority of competent Debian users know this, and that is why you are catching so much hell over putting it into Debian. And this is why so many people are coming out of the woodwork to express their concerns.. they are concerned about the integrity (stable, bug-free, flexible) of Debian as a viable server and general purpose operating system for critical applications.. and they don't want it screwed with!
I have been "coding" since the early 80's, so please don't go there with me, it doesn't work. I don't care about systemd's capabilities.. that is a mute point. All I need to know is that it is an overly complicated, unnecessary piece of crapware that reduces the integrity of the distribution and that is all that matters.
As to you initial question about what I would have the developers do.. I would say do just that.. develop Debian software that continues to make it a truly universal operating system and follows the original intent of the Debian way. Debian has been around almost as long as the Internet itself.. there are a lot of users out here that don't want to see anyone mess it up! ..Figure out a way around being stuck having to use udev since it has been co-opted by systemd.. that would be my first task for you!
