Well, I am mostly thinking about somebody who wonders what that service
is about if he doesn't know that the kernel details and the kernel
cmdline option yet.

I think systemd-hibernate-resume has the benefit that both folks who
already know the kernel side of things, and people who don't know
anything about this at all yet, have both a chance to grok what this is

If I don#t now the kernel side of things, then I would always have
assume that "systemd-resume" is something that is involved with STR, not
STD... "systemd-hibernate-resume.service" otoh makes this very clear, and also
pairs this up nicely to the existing "systemd-hibernate.service".
