Debian installs systemd by default these days, but it does provide
compatibility with sysvinit and Debian policy says that every Debian
init system must do so, see below.
I don't know whether there would be important benefits to supporting
systemd directly in Debian.
9.11. Alternate init systems
A number of other init systems are available now in Debian that can be
used in place of `sysvinit'. Alternative init implementations must
support running SysV init scripts as described at Section 9.3, `System
run levels and `init.d' scripts' for compatibility.
Packages may integrate with these replacement init systems by
providing implementation-specific configuration information about how
and when to start a service or in what order to run certain tasks at
boot time. However, any package integrating with other init systems
must also be backwards-compatible with `sysvinit' by providing a
SysV-style init script with the same name as and equivalent
functionality to any init-specific job, as this is the only start-up
configuration method guaranteed to be supported by all init
implementations. An exception to this rule is scripts or jobs
provided by the init implementation itself; such jobs may be required
for an implementation-specific equivalent of the `/etc/rcS.d/' scripts
and may not have a one-to-one correspondence with the init scripts.
