The answer is already in this thread, without the subpackage the package would 
a require a lot of packages, that are not needed for the package to work.

The package passed review, so it was accepted. Imho it is good to reduce the 
amount of packages that have to be installed without really needing them and 
for me it is pretty obvious, why there is an extra -sysv subpackage. There 
are often also X11 subpackages, when one programm has an X and a textmode 
interface, e.g. vim.
