Unlike Devuan, we couldn't. We (I'm speaking for antiX not MX) simply do not have the resources to do so. Instead we would probably rebase off Devuan if Debian became impossible to manage without systemd.

Does Devuan build its own kernel or use a Debian one?
Default Debian kernels.


Thanks

If it comes to that you and your formidable talents would be most welcome. You will find familiar faces there so a bit of a homecoming.
May the FORK be with you!
