Where do you see any "specific exceptions for broken hacks"?

We surely support different forms of virtualizations, and support
reasonable custom behavior. But we do not support providing a tty0 and
have no working VT. It's just madness we don't want to see anywhere,
and we which we don't want to collect quirks for.

UML can declare that as fine, but it does not mean for systemd to
accept that as fine. It is not.
