Wrong. You can't have any recent systemd without the Journal, and
'legacy' syslogds are piggybacking on /run/systemd/journal/syslog, where
the journal forwards syslog messages to. There's no way around that, you
can't turn the journal off.

What Fedora & co are considering, is not requiring the journal (it comes
enabled since F17 already), but having no 'legacy' syslogd installed by
default along with it.
