Yeah, this is all a good point.  I *think* it would work out the same in
practice, but there's definitely a good argument to be made for toning it
down a little to better reflect what I think the viewpoint is of systemd
proponents.  I think the median view of that perspective is closer to
yours (use the things that make sense taking into account
cross-distribution compatibility and other advantages) than to "prefer
systemd across the board."
