Your other arguments make sense, but sorry, this one does not. The
process with PID one is the only immortal process on the system, and
adopts all orphan processes. For that reason, any kind of process
monitoring, if it needs reliability, must be rooted in PID 1. And in
turn, that makes process monitoring in scope for any project that aims
to implement a program for PID 1.

And that is what makes SysV init unsalvageable.

Socket activation, automounting, etc., are entirely optional and
peripheral. Process monitoring is not.
