That's kind of what the winning option said: no, there was no point in 
having the vote in the first place, our existing procedures are working 
just fine. (+ "we don't want to be setting Technical Policy through

Indeed, sorry for the copy-paste typo.

I'm saying that §9.11 was not designed for anything else than ensuring 
that the Debian archive would keep working with the default init system 
of the time, nothing more. Reading between its lines to try convincing 
readers that it was "designed to preserve init system choices and 
prevent the kind of problems posed by systemd" is dishonest, IMHO. Feel 
free to go ask the policy editors if you disagree.
