AFAIK systemd is trying to stay backwards compatible at least in the 
sense that upstart is.  It can parse old initscripts, and there is even 
a target in archlinux that will read your DAEMONS array so you can 
pretend you never switched.  All this other stuff is just a more 
powerful option in systemd that people can move to as they're ready.
