Debian has a history for providing a variety of packages with similar

However, with systemd at the horizon, I don't see a need in supporting it

I don't know what gives you that impression.

From my impression, systemd seems way more functional and well-designed
than upstart. It is - more or less - a clone of Apple's launchd with its socket-based
activation and the capability to replace whole init bash scripts with internal code.

There is a discussion about it here [1].
