I've had this discussion so many times and I still can't believe people are thinking like that. Guys, OR and XOR are different operations! Please open the logic textbook and read about difference between them! This is vital if you want to talk about systemd!
Either implicit dependencies are used, and you rely on socket activation, but you don't start daemons as early as they could be
I haven't done enough thought experiments or study of the init process limitations to have any kind of coherent input about systemd's particulars (despite having read Lennart's blog post with interest last week), but I do have a rather decent knowledge of linguistics in general, and English in particular.
"Either" is a word which introduces a parameter to the conditional expressed by "or." It is a flag which notifies the reader that the first and second clauses of the conditional are mutually exclusive.
In other words:
("OR" != "XOR") == 1
("XOR" == "Either..or") == 1
