We are planning to update the priority of systemd and systemd-sysv to
required and demoting sysvinit and sysvinit-core to optional.
I'll amend the patch for sysvinit accordingly.

You mean something like [1]?

That is not possible, see also Ansgars reply [2]. That means on
kfreebsd/hurd the "init" package would depend on a priority: optional
package. We are aware that this is a policy violation but it is unclear
if any actual problems arise from that. So input on that is appreciated.
