I don't think that's true. If we decide that sysvinit scripts (hence LSB 
headers) have to be supported in jessie but are deprecated, then 
jessie+1 can start to drop them completely (given reasonable replacement 
for non-init defaults of course). Dropping them in the jessie suite 
would complicate the upgrade path from Wheezy for no reason that I would 
value high enough.
