That's an interesting question. You can always add a profile as a
dependency to
and add
so it goes down when the devices vanishes. This is actually pretty nice
if you think about it.

But do we really want that? Some people may say that they only want
their devices going up when they launch multi-user.target, but not when
they launch rescue.target. It's a matter you should consider carefully.
