FWIW, I have some patches for rpcbind to get proper systemd
integration, I just need to resubmit them upstream. I think our ssh
units could also go upstream to openssh.

I agree with this. The arch-units stuff was always just meant as a
temporary solution (and it is definitely sub-optimal). We have been
enabling unit files in the individual packages wherever these are
available upstream, but I guess the time has come to include unit
files for (at least some of) the remaining packages in the same way we
now include rc scripts.
