I don't know whether that is merely a poorly-thought out idea or a
deliberately abrasive obnoxious over-generalization.  There is a lot
of debate about the merits of systemd, and some people have come to
the conclusion (rightly or wrongly) that they would prefer to not use
it in their system.

Are you talking about ("somethign") SysV (or BSD) init scripts?  10-15 years?
Perhaps more like 40 years.

So if it is possibly bad, why would we want to evolve in that direction?

I use Slackware, and the guy in charge has made the conscious
decision to not use systemd, and it seems like he is unlikely to
change that any time soon.  There are currently other distros with
similar strategies.  Do people working on Trinity really want to
alienate people who use systemd-free distros?  That seems like a bad
idea to me, but that is just my opinion.
