The Raspbian maintainers *could* change (fix) this, by any of the 3 documented methods (*), but it is not clear that they would be ideologically compatible with doing so. Like systemd, it seems this trend is, like it or not, the future. As a mentor told me back in the 80s, the key to survival in the world of Personal Computing is "Don't buck trends".
(*) I think (emphasis on that word) that the most straightforward method would be the "cmdline.txt" method, since I would assume that that file is not controlled by "upstream", as it is RPi-specific.
