Cgroups are hierarchical and do not need PID 1. Indeed systemd itself despite all its baggage is sometimes used outside PID 1 to manage a cgroup until a better designed tool comes along.
Monoliths such as BusyBox and systemd can be useful tools but they are evolutionary leaf nodes. The distros which retain their ability to evolve are the future of FLOSS.
