If someone makes changes to dependencies between their packages and init
systems that break this statu quo in jessie, you could still reintroduce
your GR proposal during the freeze. But I think that this threat would
be enough to maintain statu quo until we release (also, it is unlikely
that the release team would allow such changes to be introduced during
