I would hope that this would not be allowed by Ian's proposal until
uselessd is also in Debian.  In particular, "work with one alternative
init system", I think, *should* imply that the alternative init system
is in Debian.

Ian, as I understand your previous message, you were only addressing the
issue of a non-sysvinit alternative init system, and not a not-in-Debian
alternative init system, so can you clarify your intent regarding how
your proposal would treat init systems that are not in Debian?
