At this point derevative should stop and think. Is this diversion really
needed (hint: almost never is)? What advantages this diversion brings, if
any? If it's a good idea, why upstream did not go this way?
Systemd project is trying to _get rid_ of distro difference in such trivial
matters as hostname file location. Configure options are needed to make
adoption easier, but the holy grail would be removing those options.
