And for what exactly? Gnome right now is installable with systemd-shim +
sysvinit, why can't this GR wait until after release when the dust has

That's an awfully good reason FOR pushing the GR now.

The TC stated, and passed a resolution to the effect of Debian continuing to support multiple init systems. If, as you say, "Gnome right now is installable with systemd-shim + sysvinit," those sound like release critical bugs in Gnome and/or systemd-shim - and precisely a reason to resolve this issue now, not kick it down the road.

This is a GR based on rumors, which is very sad.

Some us us want to continue to run production servers, w/o having major changes foisted on our systems - which, at the very least, will require significant testing, and possibly reconfiguration.

Breaking backwards compatibility is big deal.
