Well, if that is the sole reason why that alternative dependency was added, then this is a poor choice. Also, it would have been a good idea to mention that in the changelog. What you really want to fix is apt trying to satisfy a recommends over uninstalling/installing a new init system (which tbh I find kinda odd, that apt prefers to uninstall a package over not installing a recommends). And also, this alternative dependency is completely useless if you don't already have elogind installed, which I suspect is the case (about 1% have sysvinit installed, the number for elogind is only statistic noise).
