Can you eloborate on that a bit?
Why exactly is libelogind0 needed at all in Debian, where we have
I would very much prefer if we could simply drop libelogind0 and make
sure elogind + libsystemd0 works. Has this route been tried?

This has the potential for some interesting breakage, like the real
systemd being installed and used together with libelogind0.
We would need to make sure something like that can never happen (ideas
