A clear, logical and consistant naming convention for the services, units, etc used by systemd, on a number of occasions I have spent an hour or more looking for the script that controls a particular service. Admittedly there seems to be less of them now than when systemd first invaded. cups is a pet hate of mine, wouldn't 'cupsd' be much more intuitive than 'org.cups.cupsd.service' or am I missing something?

probably not.

It's much better to fix whats there and mostly works than go through the trauma of getting to grips with a new mostly works tool.
