So far it seems that Lennart Poettering is out to cover all the bases. Systemd is still young software, but it offers a superset of SysV init's features already (by virtue of the fact that it can use existing init scripts), so it appears to be on the right track.
Most of the criticism of systemd boils down to »It isn't what we're used to!«. If people have technical disagreements with Lennart, let them find technical arguments and hash them out. Lennart may be many things but he's apparently not stupid and neither are the people in charge of the various distributions who have expressed interest in adopting systemd. In the end we can only profit from his (and their) work if it leads to increased standardisation and more solved problems.
