Just a quick idea:

Can we (the mysterious somebody) write a drop-in simple dummy init.d script which would take a(ny) systemd service file and run the daemon on non-Linux-kernel systems?

That would reduce complexity for most packages. The maintainers could stay with handwritten shell scripts if the init.d script is more complex, but I suspect that it would be ok for most packages to just have a simple compatibility layer on top of systemd service files.
