This (general) problem has been discussed (several times?) on
debian-devel already and as far as I remember and understood it was that
raising the priority of the relevant systemd binary packages could be
done but it did not solve any *practical* problem. Instead it seemed
easier to just fix policy. I guess that's where everyone lost
I'd like to defer this issue to release team to decide what the best
course of action is. They can decide if this is a wontfix/jessie-ignore,
if policy editors must update the policy before the jessie release or
if systemd maintainers needs to adjust their priority.
