I propose to change the first paragraph from the postinst wording to this:
"This is an irreversible step. While it is recommended because It allows the
boot process to be optimized for speed and efficiency providing a more
resilient framework for development, it may not correctly transition in
complex systems without further effort on your part."
This way, while it still shows migrating to be the recommended option will
make for a stronger warning for those managing systems with chances to fail
(I managed systems with a mix of rh-cluster, aoe, lvm and md so I know I'd
better be warned on bold letters).
This and the reading of both the release notes
and /usr/share/doc/sysv-rc/README.Debian (which both probably should go
deeper on the failing modes and how to cope with them) should make the
transition easier in those cases.
