There hasn’t been such a limitation in GNOME for years.

OTOH, there is a *design choice* in GDM 2.30+, which is to switch users
to a new session instead of starting a new one. This choice is
consistent with any thinkable reasonable use of a workstation (except
for testing purposes, but a production system should not be tailored for
testing requirements). 

Making the same design choice in systemd is consistent with this, but it
is way too restrictive for a low-level component, which could be used by
many other things than the display manager. In any case it is completely
unrelated to GNOME.
