If switching to systemd is their main concern, then they can just stay
with SysV for jessie. They should probably also consider contributing
developer time (or your time) to the continued support of SysV in
jessie+1 (and beyond.)
If they want to stick with wheezy for other reasons, they should help
make squeeze LTS a success so people are more likely to also contribute
to wheezy LTS when it is inevitably EOLed by the stable security team.
If it's something else that bothers them, the way to influence Debian is
to do the work.
