I'm confused... I just checked and Hurd is in unstable.  Did you mean
something else?

I missed the rest of the discussion, but if the proposal is to replace
sysvinit with systemd, that wouldn't force removal of any non-Linux
port.  It'd be an annoying inconvenient though, as it'd just make it
diverge a bit more than it already does.

Have you considered InitNG instead?  It seems to have similar goals as
upstart/systemd without sacrificing portability:
