The problem is that it will eventually become an unmantainable mess, not 
because of initscripts itself (Tom, Dave et al did a great job to keep 
it in a good state), but because most devs are not going to provide much 
support on the rc scripts in their packages once the switch to systemd 
will be completed. Also new packages will probably not include any rc 
scripts in a short future.
