You can use pre-seeding and run

preseed/late_command="in-target apt-get install -y sysvinit-core"

in the debian-installer. While that does indeed first install
systemd-sysv, it's directly replaced again during system installation
and doesn't require you to boot with systemd as PID 1.
So it might be pretty close to what you're looking for.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
