New filesystem/systemd packages in testing have changed the way we
create system users/groups. That's done now via systemd itself or using
a systemd hook. So every package that needs certain user/group existent
or certain UID/GID to install its file will depend on systemd to be
installed on the system.

Check https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/55492 - systemd is now part of

I think it's not consequent not to move it to base group. It's the only
init system we support and therefor should be expected to be installed
on every Arch installation from now on. User/group creating packages
will need it installed in any way.
