I'm sure there is a packaging way to check whether systemd or syvinit is installed and install the legacy scripts accordingly when installing a service – assuming that service maintainers bother to maintain scripts for the non- default sysvinit.
Not without splitting init scripts into separate packages combined with other tricks like packageand() etc...
Of course it would take some effort. I guess that is one reason why it seems more sensible to focus on one init system for the official distribution rather than two. But it's doable for those that want sysvinit nevertheless and hence "(2) forbid them to include a LSB compliant init script" not true.
