Socket activation does have some nice benefits for certain network-related services. So yes, systemd is handy for deferring certain types of startups until later. On some systems this will be useful. Just not mine.

My busybox images usually run under 500K, statically linked. But the working set for the init portion is smaller than that. I haven't compared this to the working set for systemd, but if the difference in working set size is comparable to the difference in binary size (including required libraries), then I still think busybox init is going to load up faster than systemd.

Out of curiosity, what kinds of systems are you using/creating? Here's my systemd status on Fedora 20 (it's a comparatively light system, but still not as stripped as possible):
  PID USER      PR  NI    VIRT    RES    SHR S  %CPU %MEM     TIME+ COMMAND
    1 root      20   0  132128   5860   3468 S   0.0  0.1   0:02.88 systemd
Looking at /proc/1/maps, SELinux is an easy target if you want to kick something out (3 pages with 11 anon pages between them; probably related). The heap is only using 9 pages.

(I admit that I may be reading 'maps' completely wrong; feel free to educate me.)
