You keep repeating this misconception. "Could be" "nobody would". By your
logic, Apache and PostgreSQL (among many following this model) wouldn't
work. They do. Pretty reliably, at that.

Don't get me wrong: I think SysV gave up on something BSD init had,
and think it should (and could, in fact) re-gain it, but... it's not
as dramatic as (the less informed) systemd proponents would make you
believe.

Systemd has its strengths. If you managed to concentrate on those,
you would do systemd a bigger service. Spreading FUD, by contrast,
does it a disservice.
