as it would not work with a systemd init.

Which cuts directly against the idea of letting the broader Debian and free software world churn up a natural solution. The idea that it would be better for Debian to e.g. loose KDE and GNOME than to have Canonical lose upstart (which is so hopelessly broken that it can't e.g. support Apache natively) doesn't really seem like good stewardship.
But I'm just a Debian user, so perhaps I don't understand Debian's goals sufficiently; maybe there's something about free software being less important than CLA-encumbered stuff that I missed.

You probably shouldn't confuse Debian's goals with Ian Jackson's goals.
