So, since you don’t need it, other people don’t need it either?
You know, there are some who just want to use their server or desktop,
not to spend their time editing files to tune boot ordering.

That’s utter bullshit. There is ZERO point in being able to choose
between several init systems. If the technology allows it, it’s fine to
leave a choice, but making it a precondition for any development is the
road to disaster. Users expect one init system that works fine, not 3
with different sets of flaws.
