I fear you really missed the point.
Some years ago 4 stroke engines workings where fully explained in the theory books
you perused to get your driving license.
A driver could learn fix and tune the working of his machine, and become able to
patch the car to reach the nearest maintenance facility, since the engine was both
simpler and it's working well documented and known.
The same is true for the boot process.
System V init is simpler, well documented and well known (maybe a bit less well
known with dependecy based boot). Systemd could give better performance, like
computer controlled I.C. engines. But as with computer controlled engines, some of
those who were able to tinker with the boot process will lose this 'feature' (freedom?),
maybe without any noticeable benefit.
