I think that a good default would be systemd-networkd for servers and
NetworkManager for systems with Wi-Fi or a GUI.

Afaik, NetworkManager uses an external DHCP client and thus is not a
solution for the problemt hat ISC DHCP client is EOL.

Not quite. Quoting man NetworkManager.conf

           This key sets up what DHCP client NetworkManager will use. Allowed values are dhclient, dhcpcd, and internal. The
           dhclient and dhcpcd options require the indicated clients to be installed. The internal option uses a built-in DHCP
           client which is not currently as featureful as the external clients.

           If this key is missing, it defaults to internal. If the chosen plugin is not available, clients are looked for in this
           order: dhclient, dhcpcd, internal.

In Debian, we do compile in support for dhclient and internal.
For dhcpcd there is a stale bug report [1]. If someone is interested in that: I'd be ok in enabling support for dhcpcd if that someone adds an autopkgtest for that.
