I agree.
It needs to be under scrutiny by maintainers.
And a maintianer might well prefer to use the upstream init anyway.

Don't Debian source packages have aa pristine copy of upstream

should be available, and we might even be able to have a script
that extracts the upstream init or removes the patch that removes
