Maybe UC won't be chopped up after all :)
Of course, the chance of California actually being chopped up was always zero, initiative or not. So if UC is ever split apart, it won't be because of a division of the state. And more realistically, the degree to which campuses within UC have autonomy is always an issue - sometimes more and sometimes less - and has a lot to do with the support the state gives to UC.
UPDATE: The initiative now is reported to have failed to obtain sufficient signatures and so is dead. See http://www.sacbee.com/2014/09/12/6702457/six-californias-initiative-fails.html
