I don't see that dependency in sid/stretch. Can you clarify where you found this dependency? It's actually possible now, to install a systemd based (stretch) system without initscripts, sysv-rc, startpar and insserv due to recent efforts by the pkg-systemd team. As for jessie, the reason why the dependency was added can be found in the debian changelog (and also why it was dropped again).
