as far as I know, gentoo is the only distro which uses
a 'special' init system, which does not work inside a
virtual environment (well, without minor tweaks), IMHO
that is not a deficiency in gentoo, only a missing
(or better incomplete) 'implementation' of the gentoo
init style

so to make it short: debian/ubuntu should work without
change, but you might (as usual) clean up hardware
related init scripts
