This is something I don't understand either.
On any packaging system it's easy to make an
"antipackage" that just has conflicts.  So why not
just make a "no-systemd" package and install it?

It should Just Work, because Debian has to have
alternate init systems in order to support non-Linux
kernels. At least until alternate kernels add systemd
compatibility, the way the major proprietary Unixes
(remember them?) added "Linux kernel personalities".
