More a consisted behavior with previous FESCo members than surprise if 
you ask me.

An typical outcome from a group of individuals that do not know what 
they are doing and are making decisions based on their own personal 
feeling and popularity rather then common sense, practicality and hard 
technical facts.

FESCo decided to deal with the incompetence of previous FESCo/FPC and 
drop something that never made sense from the get go ( support/ship both 
systemd units and legacy sysv initscripts once the legacy sysv init 
script had been migrated ) and never worked in practice ( unless you 
renamed the legacy sysv initscript from foo to bar but if you did that 
you broke all documentation and user expectation in the process ) and do 
so in the next development cycle instead of now.

So instead of actually dealing with the topic at hand they decided to 
undo their predecessors previous work and continue this later ( more 
delays )
