Thanks for everyone's response.

  All good points, there isn't any need for an immediate reboot, and my point
wasn't to complain about the behavior. As I try and make friends with systemd, I
like to learn why things do what they do. The poweroff.timer solution is
attractive and I like the (subshell) approach (fast, simple and readily
available after kernel updates). I don't pretend to understand all the
nitty-gritty that plays into difficulty ironing out ordering between
systemd-user-sessions.service and network.target processing, but slowly the
basics are sinking in.
