Is this not something that downstream should be carrying tailored to 
what init implementation what was used in the past and or is shipped in 
the present, ( Debian for example ships/supports multiple init systems ) 
and the support for this dropped upstream?

In the end of the day we *want* the init scripted mess be migrated to 
native systemd units and the only way that will ever be done is if the 
support for it will be dropped upstream which forces distribution and 
vendors to either maintain the compatibility layer themselves and or 
actually go through the effort of migrating to native systemd units.

I would think embedded and most distribution ( with the exception of 
Debian and Slackware ) should have migrated all their legacy sysv 
initscripts to native systemd initscripts by now.
