Because it would be stupid, since it requires either one of:
- implementing the equivalent of init scripts for each init system
- dumbing down the init systems to the lowest common denominator (and 
  when you have sysvinit or OpenRC then it's quite low)

No, not really: Debian supports sysvinit and allows installing upstart 
or systemd in a way that they will use the sysvinit init scripts. This 
is not very useful (especially with upstart), because it does not bring 
many improvements over sysvinit.
Then some people start duplicating in every package the init scripts for 
upstart and systemd, which is a waste of time and adds code which cannot 
be well tested.
