in long term, i'd see rc-scripts and systemd both exist
for the sake of systems you do not want to upgrade and want the "old & 

in short term, i wouldn't drop any upstart related code in rc-scripts,
until there is usable systemd

afaik we do not need rc-scripts for systemd to function
and systemd supports running sysv-initscripts itself
(i have not verified that, just read some web pages)
