I'm not sure that this is true.
OpenRC can (on Linux) use cgroups and hence do some of the more
advanced stuff that systemd does. Yet it still runs on other
platforms. This is in part due to the fact that OpenRC is
written to be portable, while the systemd developers have an
asoundingly bad attitude with respect to this. It would be
perfectly possible for systemd to support other platforms if
they really wanted to; it probably wouldn't even be that hard.
