Recommended packages are installed by default, i.e. this is what
I would obtain if systemd were recommended.
What matters is also the list of NEW packages. Your mail was saying:
The following NEW packages will be installed:
gcc-4.9-base gcc-4.9-base:i386 geoclue-2.0 libabw-0.0-0 libaudit-common
libaudit1 libboost-date-time1.55.0 libcmis-0.4-4 libe-book-0.0-0 libeot0
libetonyek-0.0-0 libfreehand-0.0-0 libharfbuzz-gobject0 libharfbuzz0b
libharfbuzz0b:i386 libllvm3.4 libmbim-glib0 libmm-glib0 libmwaw-0.2-2
libnvidia-ml1 libpam-systemd libqmi-glib0
libsystemd-daemon0 libwebkit2gtk-3.0-25 libwebp5 libxatracker2
nvidia-modprobe systemd systemd-sysv xserver-xorg-video-modesetting
So, systemd is new, and so is libpam-systemd (recommended by systemd).
Then libpam-systemd has a dependency on systemd-sysv | systemd-shim,
meaning that since you don't have systemd-sysv or systemd-shim yet,
systemd-sysv will be taken, and sysvinit will have to be upgraded
(it is now just a metapackage in unstable, it is no longer the real
sysvinit -- sysvinit-core is, which you don't have, otherwise it would
have been in the REMOVED list due to the conflict with systemd-sysv).

You don't need to do that.

Note that I'm under unstable. It seems that you are trying to mix
stable (or testing) with unstable, which is not always possible.
