It is already packaged in Devuan and is also waiting to enter Debian[1]. I am
aware that the wlroots maintainers need/want to to use it in version 0.14 and
later. So there is the prospect of some progress. However, currently seatd uses
other logind implementations as backends[2] so it is a layer on top of that
rather than a replacement at the moment.
