That's why I said what I said.

That's why I said "it's useful there, sure, but it's not the goal". You can use systemd for embedded system with busybox and may be possible to adjust it to make it usable with Android too - but the article is pretty clear that these were non-goals when systemd was developed. If these are non-goals then you can not seriously say it was developed with embedded in mind.
The fact that Linux is usable in embedded environment is kind of accident and the same is true for systemd. Let's hope systemd will not repeat the story of linux itself (where bunch of embedded guys created bunch of incompatible forks and it took eons to clean this mess up... and it's still not entirely cleared).
