Nobody can stop anyone to work on what he wishes in Debian. This has
always been the case. If I am having fun to work on OpenRC, and wish to
have it work on the ports, that's my choice, and my choice only.

I don't think it can go as far as blocking OpenRC from being uploaded,
even if it's just experimental (experimental is there for that). The
only annoying bit would be if we decide that sysv-rc scripts (and OpenRC
runscripts) don't have to be mandatory, and that a bunch of #@(*$ refuse
to apply patches for supporting the ports sent to the BTS. Then only,
you have a problem. Though I really can't believe this will happen and
that we have such extremism within Debian. Let's assume good faith! :)
