I disagree: upgrades should get the default init system unless the
system administrator chooses otherwise.

Of course not. syslog-ng was not replaced by rsyslog when Debian changed the default syslog. The grub1 bootloader was not replaced when Debian changed to grub2. If Debian changed from exim to postfix the existing MTA would not be changed.

So keep your hands of the init system on upgrades.

b) New installs should get systemd-sysv as default init with a debconf
message about alternative init systems.
It would be totally unacceptable to waste the time of every Debian user
with pointless advertisement.

This question could be part of the expert menu.

Shade and sweet water!
