There have been several previous discussions on debian-devel and in-person
discussions at DebConfs.  The short version is that this is far from a
universal position, and there are several people who strongly prefer
upstart over systemd in Debian.  I don't know of any intention by Ubuntu
to switch away from upstart.

The most likely way forward is some period where either can be used and we
see how things shake out.  Unfortunately, neither currently supports
kFreeBSD.  The upstart upstream seems more amenable to doing so than the
systemd upstream.
