Exact quote from http://lwn.net/Articles/490413/
"In fact, we will be supporting this for a long time since
it is a necessity to make initrds (which lack systemd) work properly."
See the word "lack" and "necessity". They do not talk about it as design
features as so many people want. For them, this lack of systemd is a bug
not a feature. So according to their design patterns, they would have
liked systemd in initrd.
