/etc/init/ directory - why is still supported?

This dir was IMO for upstart config files, and now with F15/systemd
its existence is pointless, i'm right?

>From old times i was wonted to control services with
"/etc/init.d/SERVICE command" rather then "service SERVICE command"
- first variant was, using shell completion, much faster and prone
to fewer typing error. Of course, with /etc/init/ directory arrival,
was necessary type three extra character :)
Will we wait to see /etc/ without init directory?
