I can give you anedoctal evidence for the opposite: after reading the latest developments, I did

apt-get install systemd-sysv
and rebooted, with great success. Evidently, I don't know how is systemd starting its services (is it just emulating sysvinit?) yet, so I'll get back to you on that. But
/sbin/init
is a symlink to
/usr/lib/systemd/systemd

Systemd does support sysvinit scripts (technically, the LSB headers). You can even add verbs for services (akin to "service postgresql initdb") by dropping executables under /etc somewhere (can't find the docs for it, but I remember it being discussed on fedora-devel for postgresql).

It looks for a unit file in /etc/systemd/system, falls back to /usr/lib/systemd/system, and then falls back to parsing the sysv script if it can't find either of those.

For my Debian boxes that I've migrated to systemd, I've pulled in my own service files on a case-by-case basis and left the rest at their out-of-the-box defaults.
