I don't think that's entirely accurate - it was removed from unstable at
your own request, and then removed from testing due to it no longer
being present in unstable.

The issue under contention was #562945 - which I confirmed would be an
RC bug, and thus not suitable for release. This doesn't mean it couldn't
belong in Debian at all. It's good to see that runit will now allow a
system to boot (and actually run init scripts), which is great to see.
