Fedora still have quite a bit of legacy stuff (probably even more than
what we do). I'd argue that rc.local{,.shutdown} is legacy, and that
people would be better off by either writing .service files, or fixing
whatever bugs are being worked around (which is mostly the use-case)

Even if you use systemd-sysvcompat support, you are of course free to
copy the rc-local serivce files from the initscripts-systemd pacakge
and put them in /etc/systemd/system/
