I think there is only one distribution which wants builds without
libsystemd: the one that formed around MikeeUSA's call to action.

What does Debian gain from supporting a distribution whose developers
are unfriendly to Debian developers (accusing Debian to "vandalize"
open source by supporting systemd) and other people (calling a systemd
developer a cancer)?

Let me quote Devuan's IRC's infobot fact:

I don't think we should waste time to accomodate the needs of such
