I think you're missing the point. Systemd is papering over bugs in other software, and in doing so manages to break unrelated applications.

No, we shouldn't need to rely on processes behaving nicely. But when a program is broken, you fix that program, not change the entire system's semantics.

Not to mention that, with a new interface to keep things running after logout, nothing is going to stop something else misusing that, either purposely or accidentally, to remain running, and we end up right back where we started.

Interestingly enough, none of the bugs in other software that is being papered over are in closed source, so it's not like the original issues are unaddressable in the most direct way possible.
