For this I want to highlight that the systemd maintainers also
consider this a bad idea, and have already adressed and solved this
issue - the switch is done by the init package, and if people want to
keep sysvinit as default, installing sysvinit-core and maybe
systemd-shim is currently enough.
So the decision to swap the dependencies would only be to ensure that
- if there is a broken dependency solver - systemd-sysv is never
accidentially installed (and sysvinit replaced).
