Dependence on initscripts/chkconfig

there seems to be a lot of packages which still require initscripts and chkconfig.

Majority of them are because of pre/post upgrade scriptlet (sysv->systemd).
Example - rsyslog:

%triggerpostun -n rsyslog-sysvinit -- rsyslog < 5.8.2-3
/sbin/chkconfig --add rsyslog >/dev/null 2>&1 || :

Without removing these triggers it is impossible to get rid of these unnecessary
dependences. (IMHO only *-sysv sub-packages should require it).

It is quite important mainly for minimal install but there are many packages
in the whole distro.

But because Fedora supports only upgrade from N-1 version, I think there
should be some guideline to remove these scriptlets after N+1 release.

Can you provide some guidance what to do here now?
Shouldn't be these triggers removed in rawhide (F19) now?
