Well, I think it could actually have benefits too, since this way you
can use the same failure handler for a number of services.

Well, you actually can. You can do "OnFailure=failhandler@%n.service"
which then passes along the service name of the service that caused the
failure. The failure handler could then use dbus (or systemctl status)
to figure out what to do and what happened.

No, it currently doesn't.
