And besides that, if we want to reduce maintenance burden, let's stay with sysvinit (that is, or at least was, pratically stable)
One of the more important selling points of systemd is that it replaces the baroque shell scripts sysvinit uses to control daemons, which are usually distribution-specific and a major nuisance to maintain, with fairly simple declarative configuration files that distributions generally do not need to customise. This has the potential to reduce the maintenance burden in a noticeable way.
Sysvinit is only »stable« because it is essentially dead.
