systemd-sysv/shim in testing

Greetings everyone,

As brought up in this[0] thread, systemd-shim became incompatible with
the latest versions of systemd and the alternative dependency was

While this is something I can totally understand, I don't think that
systemd should migrate to testing without the possibility to use
systemd-shim instead.

My reasoning about this is as follows:
Testing should be as close to a state in which it can be released as
possible (I don't have a citation for that and just remember that I did
read that somewhere, so please correct me if I'm wrong). Further we are
not planning to release jessie without systemd-shim (at least I hope
so, again please correct me if I'm wrong).

This shouldn't be a huge problem, since waiting a week longer until
systemd migrates shouldn't be that much of a problem, while it makes
the risk smaller to accidentally remove your desktop-environment at a
dist-upgrade (that's at least what apt wanted to do on my computer).

To make it short: I suggest that systemd should only migrate together
with systemd-shim.
