I've started a subthread on the systemd list. I have an application that needs to do something that should be compatible with a single hierarchy but will be unpleasant to support under systemd's model.
I do think it might be nice if, in the new single-hierarchy regime, systemd could be make to work without cgroups. (Alternative, the cgroup-hierarchy-that-controls-nothing that systemd needs could, perhaps, be allowed to work separately from the real cgroup hierarchy, so systemd could have a mode where it stays away from the latter.)
