It's not a question of "decide", but to actually go ahead and do it.
It's quite obviously better to have native units as they are both
upstreamable (and thus improve inter-distro collaboration and
documentation), and allow you to actually use the powers of a modern
init system.

Over time this will happen, but I doubt that SysV init scripts will
entirely go away anytime soon. At least you need the support for
third-party packages, and LSB mandates them.
