I wonder why everyone thinks that Archlinux is about a single config file...
It is the same myth as "Arch is faster than distro XYZ" or the "simple BSD

Arch is about hackability and upstream compliance. AFAICT this is not going
away. Besides, archlinux users should be experienced enough to manage 5 config
files instead of 1. So if there is a single technical argument to use systemd
syntax standard, it should overweigh 10 aesthetic predespositions.

Those who have to manage lots of servers and object to the change because of
stability arguments, shot themselves in the foot long time ago by merely
installing arch...
