That would require changes to a number of packages to ensure they end up
installing the default init.  (vmdebootstrap, ganeti, fai at least comes
to mind).  I think it would also be crazy for debootstrap to end up
installing a non-default init by default.

Arguably, debootstrap could be taught not to install an init at all, but
that tool will require adjusting all those other ways of installing
Debian as well as a good bunch of testing to ensure nothing breaks.  I
don't think that would be appropriate at this stage of the freeze.
