You are very right with the above, some features are probably never
going to be implemented elsewhere than in systemd.

However, this doesn't mean that anything non-systemd must implement all
things that systemd does, or just die. It really doesn't make sense to
tell that, for example, OpenRC should be forced into implementing a
parser of .timer files, just because some maintainers wont care about
cron jobs. These cron jobs could be maintained by those who care, just
like with sysv-rc scripts, as a best-effort basis.
